Oregon dairy farm launches $55 million RNG project supplying the California market

December 4, 2019 |

In Oregon, Threemile Canyon Farms and Equilibrium has successfully commissioned Oregon’s only dairy manure renewable natural gas production facility – one of the largest in the US.

The facility located near Boardman, Oregon, uses the manure from 33,000 dairy cows to feed an anaerobic digester system followed by a biogas clean-up system that injects renewable natural gas into the natural gas grid. The RNG is used as a transportation fuel to eliminate about 130,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions

per year, which equates to removing 28,000 cars from the road. The $55 million project began injecting RNG into the grid in July of 2019 and the RNG is currently being used as transportation fuel in California.

Iogen provided the project with a structured RNG offtake agreement that helped maximize project returns within risk boundaries. Under a 10-year agreement, Iogen is providing an investment-grade floor price for RNG with market upside sharing, and is managing all fuel compliance activities, including generating and monetizing D3

RINs under the federal Renewable Fuel Standard and LCFS Credits under the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard program.
