CapturePoint Closes 45Q Direct Transfer Tax Credit Transaction Associated With the Arkalon Co2 Capture Facility in Kansas


ALLEN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 18, 2024--

CapturePoint LLC announced today that it has closed on a private Section 45Q direct transfer tax credit transaction for carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) captured at the company’s Arkalon facility near Liberal, Kansas and utilized for Carbon Dioxide Enhanced Oil Recovery (CO 2 -EOR) operations in the panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas.

The CapturePoint Arkalon CO 2 capture facility has the capacity to capture 250,000 metric tons of CO 2 annually from nearby bio-ethanol production. CapturePoint transports the captured CO 2 through its 170-mile regional network of dedicated CO 2 pipelines to over 75 active CO 2 injection wells the company uses for CO 2 -EOR operations. Once CO 2 -EOR operations cease, the CO 2 is ultimately securely stored permanently underground.

The new Arkalon CO 2 capture facility was placed in service in April 2023, generating Section 45Q tax credits for capturing and utilizing industrially sourced CO 2 emissions. The Tax Credit Transfer Agreement between CapturePoint and the buyer includes placement of 100% of the 45Q tax credits generated by the Arkalon facility for a total of 12 years. At closing, CapturePoint will transfer all 2023-generated 45Q tax credits to the buyer.

“CapturePoint is at the leading edge of carbon management innovation in the United States,” said CEO Tracy Evans, “and our Arkalon CO 2 capture facility and Panhandle CO 2 -EOR operations are helping the nation achieve important environmental and energy security goals. Our team is also developing expansive deep underground carbon storage sites – like our CPS Central Louisiana Regional Carbon Storage Hub -- to permanently and safely sequester much larger volumes of CO 2 currently released into the atmosphere by industrial emitters.”

The Section 45Q transaction announced today was placed privately by Marathon Capital. “We were honored to support CapturePoint on one of the industry’s first Section 45Q tax credit transfer transactions for their Arkalon CO 2 capture facility,” said Matthew Shanahan, Managing Director at Marathon Capital. “We wish the CapturePoint team continued success as a leader in carbon management services.”

With both the Arkalon CO 2 capture facility Section 45Q placement and an earlier transaction announced in January 2023 for CO 2 captured at a nitrogen fertilizer facility in Coffeyville, Kansas, CapturePoint now has nearly one million metric tons per year of industrially sourced CO 2 being utilized in CO 2 -EOR operations and generating 45Q tax credits.
