Flying Dust First Nation

Flare Gas Project

Project Update

The project proposes to use gas associated with the production of oil,  and normally flared or vented, as fuel to generate power.

In spring 2018 FNPA and SaskPower signed a First Nation Opportunity Agreement (FNOA), which set-aside 20MW of flare gas based power exclusively for First Nation development. In early 2019,  Flying Dust First Nation and Genalta Power Inc. entered into a formal partnership arrangement to develop, construct and operate 20MWs of set-aside based flare to power electricity generation..

Currently the partnership is in the process of  finalizing gas supply agreements. The formal proposal submission for the Flying Dust Flare Gas Project was submitted to SaskPower in February 2020.

20 MW Solar Set-Aside

In May of  2019, FNPA and SaskPower signed a First Nation Opportunity Agreement (FNOA) which set-aside 20MW of solar based power exclusively for First Nation development. Following a successful screening process, two proponent teams were awarded the opportunity to submit proposals for the development of two separate 10MW solar generation plants.
