Meridian Energy Group, Inc. Continues Significant Progress on Davis Refinery; Coming to Life Through Engineering

BELFIELD, North Dakota (Thursday, March 14th 2019) – Meridian Energy Group, Inc., the emerging growth refining firm and leading innovator in advanced technology and environmentally-beneficial petroleum processing facilities, continues to make significant progress on the design of the Davis Refinery. The Davis Refinery is currently in the final stages of FEED Engineering, where further developments and designs of the refinery are coming together as the vision becomes a reality. The Meridian project team is focused on completing detailed design and construction in the coming months. Relentless manhours are being spent designing the technologically advanced, state-of-the-art Davis Refinery, the first of its kind and the prototype of many projects to come for Meridian.

Lance Medlin, Meridian Energy Chief Projects Officer, on steps taken so far: “Meridian is proud of the continued progress both on the ground, and in the engineering offices as the Davis Refinery draws closer to physical reality with the help of our many partnerships and industry best contractors. With the onboarding of our Midstream partner, and the continuing efforts of our FEED/EPC partner, McDermott, to complete the difficult upfront design requirements, we’ve been able to de-risk the major construction activities that so often accompany projects of this scale in cold weather climates. We’re looking forward to unveiling our full design in the coming months.”

Project Manager, Curtis Smith, on the engineering progress, “Since joining the Meridian team last year, we have ramped up on adding engineering leads along with McDermott and their experienced design engineers, which has enabled us to make great forward progress. All of the valued partners and interfaces within the project have helped us achieve the excellence we strive for each day with goal-oriented focus and drive by all. By involving the right people, we have been able to properly plan, design and de-risk the challenges that lie ahead. I am very proud of what we have accomplished here at Meridian, as we all actively work to keep it in place and grow, with a “One Team, One Goal” mentality.”
