North Dakota flares over 300 MCF/day of natural gas, yet provides no incentives to move this gas into compressed natural gas applications for vehicle/fleet usage Blaise Energy converted our field service vehicles to be bi-fuel powered running on CNG or gasoline, which are operating without issue.

“Blaise Energy is working to reduce flaring so we can harness more of the natural gas – and avoid wasting some of it –…”
One local North Dakota based company is coming up with solutions to flaring. Workers at Blaise Energy company are talking about ways they're capturing and using natural gas.
“Everybody sees that flare and it’s an obvious source of frustration,” Mark Wald, owner of Blaise Energy, told the Bismark Tribune. “You ask yourself, ‘how can we capture that energy?’ There’s got to be a better way.”
Blaise Energy builds and leases generators that burn natural gas, which can in turn power operations at the well pad, replacing diesel-fuel generators or the need to string power lines to isolated locations.
Local Bismarck company reduces flaring, which comprises about 29% of the natural gas produced in the Bakken.
Blaise Energy is working hard to evaluate, test and deploy new forms of distributed gas processing. In other words, they are taking the energy from flares and converting it at the flaring location into more usable forms of energy
“Flared natural gas, we all agree, is a waste of energy,” said Paul Govig with the North Dakota Department of Commerce. “Eventually, we’re going to get that problem solved, but it takes a while.”
Blaise Energy Inc. started out generating electricity from flare gas at the well site, consuming the associated gas in a natural gas generator before sending the electricity back into the electrical grid. “It is far easier and much faster to power our wells directly, generating site power from gas prior to it getting to the grid,” Mark Wald said.

This “recycled energy” helps better utilize the state’s natural resources while reducing emissions. By working directly with state leadership, Blaise Energy is providing real solutions to address the challenge of flaring in North Dakota.
Mark Wald, the president of Blaise Energy, said that as far as he can tell, his company is the first in the U.S. to generate third party verified “renewable” energy credits from captured natural gas, something allowed by North Dakota’s renewable energy law.
Blaise Energy has been taking natural gas at the well head and generating electricity on site, which can be used locally or added to the grid.
…we like Mark Wald's idea of capturing that natural gas, using it to power a generator and then pushing the resulting electricity into the local grid. Loss turns into a win.
"I'm very impressed with the project," Lynn Helms, director of the state Department of Mineral Resources said. "That's going to be another big first for North Dakota, capturing flared gas and making it electricity."
Blaise Energy will receive $375,000 in state research funds for its work into how to better use excess gas that surfaces during the drilling process.
