Innovative and Forward-Thinking
Meridian Energy Group Inc. is developing innovative and environmentally-compliant oil refining facilities. We are using state of the art equipment and processes to construct the first greenfield fuels refineries in the U.S. in four decades. Our plants are designed to be highly efficient and capable of producing nearly zero sulfur diesel and jet fuels years ahead of EPA mandates.
The plant is being designed to be highly efficient and will be capable of producing nearly zero sulfur diesel and jet fuels years ahead of EPA mandates. Operating on natural gas will provide many advantages, including low operating costs, and low emissions. The Lowest Achievable Emission Rates (“LAER”) will be achieved by use of the Best Available Control Technology.
Meridian is building a state-of-the-art crude oil refinery sited on approximately 150 acres (and additional acreage for buffer) in Billings County east of the Fryburg Rail Facility in Belfield, North Dakota – the heart of the Bakken. At a rated capacity of up to 49,500 barrels per day (“bpd”), Davis could produce as much as 800mm gallons per year of refined products from local crude to serve regional markets.
There will be up to 100 new direct hire jobs created at the Meridian Permian Refinery. Job creation studies by the State of Washington for refineries located in Anacortes, Washington, show a job multiplier effect of up to 12:1. If the same held true in Winkler County, this means there will be total job creation, including indirect and induced jobs, of up to 1,200 new jobs for the local community.
