Summit Carbon Solutions begins drilling test wells

December 1, 2021 |

In Iowa, Summit Carbon Solutions has commenced drilling multiple stratigraphic test wells, a key milestone in its development of the world’s largest carbon capture and storage project. The test wells and Summit’s permanent geologic storage sites are in North Dakota, where Summit has formed relationships with local landowners and is now collecting data to guide the safe, permanent storage of carbon dioxide in deep subsurface formations.

Summit will capture over 10 million tons per year of carbon dioxide emissions from ethanol plants and other industrial facilities and selected North Dakota as the storage destination due to the state’s abundant geologic storage capacity and its well-established carbon management regulatory framework.
