The Denver-based Crusoe Energy Systems company has announced its flare mitigation operations have expanded into several more northern states with oil and gas operations.
The firm’s Digital Flare Mitigation systems were already operational in Colorado, North Dakota and Wyoming. But the company has agreed to provide up to ten more systems in Montana, Wyoming and North Dakota by the end of the year.
Crusoe Energy says it has already eliminated more than 25 million cubic feet of natural gas flaring through its system. The company advertises that it marries technology-empowered solutions with the oil industry’s greatest environmental challenges.
Crusoe uses gas that would have otherwise been burned in the air as a “flare,” and instead powers modular, mobile data centers designed specifically for the oilfield. In addition to reducing waste, this solution can also help both oil companies and pipeline operators to significantly reduce emissions.
Crusoe currently has flare mitigation projects operating in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin oilfield, Colorado’s Denver-Julesburg oilfield and North Dakota’s Bakken oilfield.
