We are focused on the development of innovative and environmentally-compliant oil refining facilities.

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,” 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. 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. With groundbreaking taking place in July 2018, plant completion is expected by 2020.

Meridian’s management team has extensive experience in refinery development, including long tenures with some of the world’s leading petrochemical companies.

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 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. With groundbreaking taking place in July 2018, plant completion is expected by 2020. The property is in close proximity to oil and gas pipelines and major transportation highways. The Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail line runs directly through the refinery site, facilitating the construction of a crude oil feedstock offloading and refined fuels uploading terminal.
