Project Viking is a proposed 150 megawatt power plant touted as being located next to a refinery in New Mexico.[1] The company promoting the project, CO2 Global is vague about the exact details of the project. On its website it states only that the plant "is ideally located in SE New Mexico near the outer extremity of the established CO2 pipeline infrastructure that extends across the Permian Basin and into West Texas."[2]

Project details

On its website CO2 Global states that "the Project is undertaking a Concept Study with WorleyParsons in Houston that will confirm process design, per-formance and cost-estimates prior to initiating the Front-End Engineering & Design targeted to start 3Q-2010 ... We propose a phased deployment with the first 35 MW unit being available during 1Q-2013. This will be dedicated to providing steam and power to the refinery. During 2013 we shall target deployment of three more units operating in a combined-cycle mode that will produce 115 MW power for export."[2]

Funding

The company states that it "is organising a cost-share between private and government funding to cover an estimated $20 million in project development costs that is necessary to reach Finan-cial Close during 3Q-2011. Subsequently around $100 million will be sought from private investors to cover an esti-mated 30% equity required for capital investment, construction and commissioning."[2]
