The biggest news of the open house was the approval of the storage facility permit by the North Dakota Industrial Commission on October 19, which brings the RTE CCS project one step closer to becoming the first of its kind in North Dakota.
Work is currently under way on this project, and iPIPE is proud to help advance the technology.
The intelligent Pipeline Integrity Program (iPIPE) has partnered with Pipeline-Risk to advance optimization of pipeline risk management and prevent incidents.
The North Dakota Industrial Commission approved Red Trail Energy’s (RTE’s) storage facility permit at its October 19 meeting.
The virtual open house, an opportunity to hear updates about the Red Trail Energy CCS project will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, November 10, at 6:00 p.m. MT (7:00 p.m. CT).
"We're fortunate to have strong partnerships from around the state interested in collaboration and working toward a greater energy future in North Dakota," said Gorecki.
“The technology aboard the satellite provides high-resolution imagery not previously available to our industry, and we look forward to learning how to apply this new capability through our iPIPE partnership work,” said Darren Schmidt.
Researchers at the EERC have developed a new method for imaging the subsurface of the Bakken. The Quantitative Image Analysis (QIA) method is a useful tool for characterizing the porosity and microstructure of unconventional source and reservoir rock.
“This presentation was a great opportunity not only to share information on the cutting-edge geophysics projects conducted throughout the PCOR region but also to highlight how geophysics plays a vital role in CCUS projects from a regulatory perspective,” Amanda said.
Increased infrastructure in North Dakota for moving large volumes of oil and gas require new technology for pipeline safety to achieve the goal of zero spills or leaks.
