Doosan Babcock has announced that it has been selected to undertake a major carbon capture project with Basin Electric Power Cooperative, a US utility based in Bismarck, North Dakota. The project will be led by Doosan Babcock in partnership with Canadian carbon capture technology firm, HTC Purenergy.
The eventual aim of the project is to use the captured CO2 for enhanced oil recovery close to the power plant with the CO2 subsequently stored underground.
The initial engineering phase will commence in January and will provide Basin Electric with a comprehensive assessment to enable them to make a decision on the final project notice to proceed for the CO2 capture plant solution.
'Basin Electric Power Cooperative is a globally recognised leader in CO2 management through its high profile CO2 capture and enhanced oil recovery/storage project in Weyburn, Saskatchewan,' said Lionel Kambeitz, chairman and CEO of HTC Purenergy. 'In this new project Doosan Babcock and HTC will provide and integrate world-leading, commercial-ready carbon capture technology, developed at the University of Regina, into the Basin Electric Antelope Valley Station coal-fired power plant.'
