Navigator CO2: Eminent domain is a “tool of absolute last resort”

Summit began hearings on its carbon pipeline project this week, but there is another pipeline company we are following up on too.

Navigator CO2 believes that eminent domain is a “tool of absolute last resort.” The rule is at the center of these carbon-capturing projects, as land owners go head to head with the companies over land access.

Summit is pursuing dozens of eminent domain actions in court, but Navigator is still hoping to get theirs done voluntarily, with 30 percent of affected landowners signed off so far.
