There are 27,000 miles of pipeline in North Dakota, most of them “gathering pipelines” that bring oil to a central spot. iPIPE, the Intelligent Pipeline Integrity Program, a consortium of oil companies and the EERC, is a program that selects and tests new technology to detect and prevent pipeline links.

UND’s EERC uses ‘Shark Tank’-like approach in search of emergent technologies to reduce pipeline spills

Jason Laumb and the EERC, are working with industry partners on a $6-million project to determining the cost of installing a carbon-capture system at a coal-powered utility plant, the Milton R. Young Station power plant near Center, N.D., northwest of Bismarck. The idea is to use such a facility to caputure carbon dioxide and use it to enhance oil recovery by injecting it deep into the ground, where it would be forever stored.
