Meridian Energy Group, Inc. Issued Permit to Construct for the Davis Refinery
June 13th 2018
It is the Mission of Meridian Energy Group, Inc. to provide long term shareholder value through
the development and operation of the cleanest, most efficient and environmentally compliant
crude oil refineries in the world, benefiting our investors and the community.
Meridian is focused on the developement of innovative and environmentally-compliant oil refining facilities. Our current focus is on the development of the "Davis Refinery" (27,500 bpd). Sited on approximately 150 acres (with additional acreage for buffer) in Billings County, east of the Fryburg Rail Facility in Belfield, North Dakota - the heart of the Bakken. The plant is currently in the design phase with groundbreaking on the first phase expected in early 2018. Plant completion of the initial construction phase is expected by early 2019.
Meridian will use state of the art equipment and processes to construct one of the first greenfield fuels refinery in the U.S. in four decades. 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 coming to the Bakken with a commitment to the future and an eye to the big picture. Our plans include the addressing of critical infrastructure needs for housing, commercial businesses, industrial space and basic utilities. We are developing a gas fired power plant to ensure sufficient electrical power for the refinery and the nearby community of Belfield. Our refinery will create permanent, high paying jobs, something the entire community can get behind.
Meridian's management team has extensive experience in refinery development, including long tenures with some of the world's leading petrochemical companies.
