I’m a 15-year member with the Laborers International Union of North America Local 563 whose members have been integral in the state’s power generation industry. Pipeline construction is my specialty, and I’ve been involved in many key pipelines here in the state.
North Dakota is poised to be the biggest player in a relatively new industry – carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). Red Trail Ethanol already has its carbon sequestration facility operational and Blue Flint Ethanol will go live with its project later this year.
MinnKota Power has been actively pursuing Project Tundra to construct a $1.5 billion CCS system, having gone through all the engineering and design. The company led the state’s initiatives for years before other organizations started looking at CCS. Rainbow Energy – Coal Creek Station’s owner – is also planning a major CCS project to keep the plant and its valuable employees for many more years.
