North Dakota Energy Spotlight – Synthetic Natural Gas

• The Dakota Gasification Company’s Great Plains Synfuels Plant is the only commercial-scale coal gasification plant in the United States that manufactures synthetic natural gas from lignite coal. It produces an average of 153 million cubic feet of natural gas a day which is shipped via pipeline to the eastern United States.

• The Synfuels Plant captures between 2.5 and 3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year that it pipes to aged Canadian oil fields for use in enhanced oil recovery.
