South Dakota Regulators Deny Navigator’s CO2 Pipeline Application

(Pierre, SD) — The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission is unanimously denying the Navigator CO2 project’s permit application. The decision was made at a meeting on Wednesday for the company’s Heartland Greenway System pipeline. The commission also unanimously denied Navigator’s motion to preempt local ordinances through federal law as a means of circumventing what the company considers overly restrictive setback distances. The three-point-two billion dollar pipeline system was slated to cross about 112 miles of eastern South Dakota farmland between Brookings, Lincoln, Minnehaha, Moody, and Turner counties.
