Nrg Energy Inc. Announces Joint Venture with JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corp. to Build the Post-Combustion Carbon Capture and Sequestration Facility in Fort Bend County, Texas

Andrews Kurth LLP served as project development counsel to NRG Energy Inc. in the company's joint venture with JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corp. to build the large post-combustion carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) facility on an existing coal plant in Fort Bend County, Texas.

The CO(2) will be delivered through an 82-mile pipeline for enhanced oil recovery at the West Ranch Oil Field in Jackson County, Texas. The West Ranch Oil Field is estimated to contain more than 60 million barrels of oil, available through enhanced recovery operations. The sale of CO2 for enhanced oil recovery in the previously depleted West Ranch Oil Field; its modular design, which allows the addition of CCS at operating power plant facilities; and its reduction of CO2 otherwise emitted from coal-fired power plants. The team from Andrews Kurth was heavily involved with many of the transaction's complex elements, including preparing operations and maintenance and shared facilities agreements for the CCS facility and a companion 78-megawatt combustion-turbine-peaking power plant; negotiating a fixed price, turnkey engineering, procurement and construction contract for the CCS facility with subsidiaries of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and The Industrial Company (TIC); negotiating license agreements with respect to proprietary technology provided by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to be incorporated in the CCS facility; negotiating a construction contract for the 82-mile CO(2) pipeline from the W.A.
