Department of Energy withholding records on Two Elk carbon capture study

The U.S. Department of Energy is withholding records related to the carbon capture project at the Two Elk power plant in Wyoming because of a pending legal investigation, according to a report from the Associated Press.

The report states the study received nearly $10 million in economic stimulus grants and was stopped more than a year ago by Two Elk developer North American Power Group, based in Colorado.

According to the Associated Press, researchers at the project said a well that was expected to be drilled was not. The Associated Press filed a Freedom of Information Act seeking documents showing what happened, but the request was denied by the Department of Energy because of a claim that releasing a law enforcement record could interfere with an active investigation.
