BISMARCK, ND – The North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC) will hold four public hearings regarding a proposal to construct a carbon dioxide pipeline in North Dakota.

SCS Carbon Transport LLC (Summit Carbon Solutions) is requesting a siting permit for the Midwest Carbon Express CO2 Pipeline Project. The project would consist of approximately 320 miles of carbon dioxide pipeline ranging from 4.5 to 24-inches in diameter and associated facilities. In addition to the pipelines, the project will include the construction of aboveground facilities that will include pump stations, pig/inspection tool launcher and receiver sites, mainline valves, and permanent and temporary access roads. The estimated cost of the project is $898 million.

The proposed pipeline would be built in parts of Burleigh, Cass, Dickey, Emmons, Logan, McIntosh, Morton, Oliver, Richland and Sargent Counties. (Note to the media: A map showing the proposed location of the project has been provided to you for use with any announcements/stories you print.)
