Truthout Reports on Domina Law’s Fight Against Midwest Carbon Express Pipeline, Heartland Greenway


The ongoing controversy over proposed carbon capture pipelines has received new coverage in an article published by Truthout, a nonprofit news organization dedicated to independent reporting on social justice issues.

The article covers how farmers, ranchers, and other rural landowners across the Midwest are opposing several projects that aim to capture carbon dioxide emissions from ethanol plants and transport the CO2 through thousands of miles of pipeline so it can be sequestered underground. This includes the Midwest Carbon Express Pipeline, a $4.5 billion project proposed by Summit Carbon Solutions that would transport CO2 from plants in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota to fields in North Dakota, and the Heartland Greenway, a proposed project from Navigator CO2 Ventures that would store its CO2 below ground in Central Illinois.

As reported by Truthout, Domina Law Group and Attorney Brian Jorde represent clients in all states affected by the proposed pipelines. Just as they did when landowners’ property was threatened by the Keystone XL pipeline, which was cancelled in July 2021, Jorde and our team are working closely with property owners and local organizations to help clients fight key issues in the battle over carbon pipelines, including project permitting, safety and regulatory matters, and Summit’s attempted use of eminent domain to secure right-of-way construction access.

Through groups like the Iowa Easement Team, Jorde and Domina Law are also educating landowners about their property rights, legal options, and strategies for negotiating favorable terms in any easement contracts they may be required to sign.
