Summit Carbon Solutions provides update on the pipeline at DakotaFest

MITCHELL, S.D.(WNAX)- The backers of the Summit Carbon Solutions pipeline expect to have most land easements in hand and a final route selected later this year.

Chief Commercial Officer Jim Pirolli says they are still adjusting the potential pipeline route in eastern South Dakota.

At a forum at Dakotafest, Pirolli says they have about thirty percent of the necessary easements in hand.

Pirolli says any use of eminent domain to get access to land is a long way off.

The pipeline would transport liquid carbon dioxide from ethanol plants in Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota to underground storage in central North Dakota.
