BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Summit Carbon Solutions (SCS) has resubmitted its pipeline permit to the North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC).

SCS announced on Friday it submitted a revised permit with a Petition for Reconsideration after the PSC denied its first permit in early August. In the petition, SCS addressed and amended concerns of the PSC, including rerouting the pipeline 10 miles north of Bismarck city limits and avoiding areas of concern like game management areas.

“Addressing the concerns of the ND PSC is a top priority for us, and we’ve worked diligently to revise our application accordingly,” said Summit Carbon Solutions CEO Lee Blank. “Our aim is to work collaboratively, listen to everyone’s input, and align our project with the long-term vision that North Dakota has for its energy and agricultural sectors. We are confident that our efforts will contribute positively to North Dakota’s future, and we’re excited to be part of this journey.”

SCS also noted that nearly 80 percent of the right-of-way for the pipeline route had been secured through voluntary easements from landowners and almost 90 percent of the space needed for carbon sequestration sites in North Dakota had also been secured.
