From Coal to Natural Gas

According to documents from the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, Georgia Pacific submitted a construction permit application to replace boiler 2 connected to unit 1 with a new natural gas boiler. The replacement should be completed in 2017.[3]

EIA 2020 860M database shows all 3 units as natural gas units but this is incorrect based on other sources and EIA923 fuel data that still lists coal in their boiler fuel data.[4][5]
