This CCS project is developed by Coffeyville Resources Nitrogen Fertilizers, LLC, Chapparal Energy and Blue Source. 
Located in Southeast Kansas, Coffeyville Resources is a petroleum refiner and marketer of  transportation fuels in the mid-continental U.S. and, through a limited partnership, a producer of ammonia and urea ammonia nitrate, or UAN, fertilizers. This process of creating nitrogen fertilizer involves the gasification of the petroleum coke to make synthetic natural gas for use in the production.

This process creates CO2, some of which is used in the manufacturing of the fertilizers, but approximately 40,000 Mcf/d of CO2 is vented into the atmosphere. By capturing and sequestering this CO2, this project will reduce GHG emissions by more than 650,000 tonnes per year.

Chaparral Energy, an independent oil and natural gas production and exploitation company, is working with Coffeyville Resources to build a CO2 compression facility at the plant site. The CO2 from the project will be transported by pipeline to Chaparral's oil fields at its North Burbank Unit in Osage County, Oklahoma.

Blue Source will work to develop options to sequester Coffeyville Resources' produced CO2, with particular focus on securing a market for the CO2 within the enhanced oil recovery (EOR) industry. Injection started in 2013.
