21 December 2009– Doosan Babcock was chosen to work on a carbon capture project with Basin Electric Co-op at one of the company’s coal-fired plants. Doosan Babcock will lead the project along with Canadian carbon capture company, HTC Purenergy.
The purpose of the project is to use the captured carbon dioxide (CO2) for enhanced oil recovery near Basin Electric’s 900 MW Antelope Valley Station in North Dakota and subsequently storing the CO2 underground nearby.
The initial engineering phase is expected to begin in January. No other details about the project were disclosed.
