PanCanadian, Dakota Gasification launch Weyburn CO2 miscible flood project


PanCanadian Petroleum Ltd., Calgary, and Dakota Gasification Co. (DGC), Bismarck, ND, a wholly owned subsidiary of Basin Electric & Power Cooperative, officially launched their Weyburn, Sask., CO2 miscible flood project, PanCanadian said Thursday.

PanCanadian and DGC ceremonially opened the pipeline valves that connect the project at the US-Canadian border.

The $1.1 billion (Can.) Weyburn project will inject 95 MMcfd of CO2into the 46-year old Weyburn oil field in southeastern Saskatchewan (OGJ Online, July 19, 2000). Injection, which is already underway, will boost oil production by more than 50% to 30,000 b/d over the next 10 years. The first incremental production is expected next year, said DGC.

DGC will supply the CO2 from the Great Plains Synfuels plant at Beulah, ND, to Weyburn.

The Weyburn project will sequester 14 million tonnes of CO2 that would otherwise be vented to the atmosphere. The synfuels plant produces 160 MMcfd of natural gas from coal gasification.
