Tallgrass Energy recently received permission from the federal government to convert its existing Trailblazer pipeline, which currently carries methane gas across Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming, into a carbon dioxide (CO2) pipeline.

A Community Benefits Agreement has been announced between the company Tallgrass and Bold Nebraska, also earning the support of local community groups Renewable Fuels Nebraska, the Nebraska State Volunteer Firefighter Association, the Nebraska Farm Bureau, the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, the Nebraska Cattlemen Association, the Nebraska Farmers Union, the Nebraska Soybean Association, the Nebraska Sorghum Producers, the Nebraska Dairy Producers, the Nebraska Pork Association and We Support AG.

This landmark agreement sets a new precedent for pipeline infrastructure by establishing a series of community initiatives as well as creating rigorous landowner rights protections throughout the pipeline’s life cycle, from early project development through easement negotiations, operations, and decommissioning. The impacted Nebraska counties include Sarpy, Saunders, Butler, Polk, Hamilton, York, Filmore, Saline, Adams, Merrick, Hall, Clay, Kearney, Perkins, Lincoln, Gosper and Phelps.


Join fellow impacted landowners and community members for a virtual meeting (via computer or telephone) on Friday, April 26 at 12:00 p.m. Central Time (11:00 a.m. Mountain Time), to learn more information and ask questions about the Community Benefits Agreement. The program will feature Bold Alliance founder Jane Kleeb. In-person meetings will also be held on May 18th in Beatrice, and a representative from Tallgrass will be present at the May 18 meeting, details below.
