Dakota Gasification Company (DGC)

Brief description:

Dakota Gasification Company (Dakota Gas) is a subsidiary company of the Basin Electric Power Cooperative. It owns and operates the Great Plains Synfuels Plant, which is the only commercial-scale coal gasification plant in the USA to manufacture natural gas. It captures around 50% of the plant's CO2 emissions and transports it through a 205-mile pipeline to Saskatchewan, Canada, where two customers use the gas for EOR in the Weyburn and Midale oilfields. The first CO2 was sent to Canada in October 2000. As of December 2010, the company had captured more than 20 million tonnes of CO2.
