The Lost Cabin Gas Plant Capture Project is a facility owned by ConocoPhillips which captures carbon dioxide that is currently vented at its Lost Cabin gas plant in Fremont County, Wyoming.

The carbon is then taken Denbury Resources for Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage and CO2 enhanced oil recovery in the Bell Creek oil field in southern Montana.[1] Denbury has proposed to construct the 105-mile Cedar Creek Anticline Pipeline (CCA Pipeline), which would run from Fallen County, Montana to Bowman County, North Dakota as an extension of the Greencore Pipeline.[2] The company has announced construction slated to commence in June 2021 in its quarter one earnings call for 2021.[3] It will carry CO2 generated as a by-product from the Lost Cabin gas plant to North Dakota to facilitate CO2 EOR.[4][5]

In 2019, the Lost Cabin plant emitted 191,281.7 metric tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, the equivalent of 41,600 cars driven on the road for a year and 34,745 homes' electricity use for one year.[6][7]

The Lost Cabin Plant also emits high levels of carbonyl sulfide, H2S, PM 2.5, PM 10, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxide [8]
