Crusoe Energy Systems LLC announced today a new collaboration with XCL Resources LLC to deploy Crusoe’s flare technology in Utah’s Uinta Basin.

Under an agreement with XCL, Crusoe will use its Digital Flare Mitigation technology to add 6 MMcf/d of XCL’s production in the Uinta.

Crusoe said its equipment, running at full capacity, is expected to reduce equivalent CO2 emissions by up to 273,000 tons per year, equivalent to taking 60,000 cars off the road for a year.

The project is projected to bring more than 100 jobs consisting of both short- and long-term construction and operational employment opportunities to the basin.

“We’re excited to extend Crusoe’s positive environmental impact into the Uinta Basin and to significantly expand our capacity to reduce methane emissions,” said Cully Cavness, Crusoe’s co-founder and president. “This collaboration with XCL will help to advance Crusoe’s mission to align the future of computing with the future of the climate.”

“XCL is focused on providing abundant, low-cost and reliable energy that is developed responsibly within our communities,” said Blake McKenna, XCL’s President and COO. “This partnership with Crusoe fits that strategy by implementing cutting-edge technology that reduces emissions and supports XCL’s continued growth.”
