North Dakota regulators reject Summit Carbon Solution's road permit request

(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota regulators are rejecting a request from Summit Carbon Solutions for a road permit for a controversial regional carbon-dioxide pipeline.

The pipeline would run through several North Dakota counties.  

Friday's unanimous decision by the three-member Public Service Commission involves Summit Carbon's five-point-five-billion dollar Midwest Carbon Express project.

Company officials say they will go back to the drawing board to craft a new plan that will win the board's approval.
