North Dakota CCS prowess proves attractive to Cerilon’s gas-to-liquid ambitions

The lead that North Dakota has taken with Class VI wells dedicated to carbon dioxide sequestration is pulling in key projects, with the help of new US federal incentives.

Canada-based energy developer Cerilon has included carbon capture within the framework of its plans for a $2.8 billion greenfield gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant in North Dakota — with front-end design, automation, and digital services provided by technology company ABB.

The planned plant will produce 24,000 barrels per day of synthetic energy products.
