"You can never say 100 per cent, but it's the next thing to that,'' said Gary Drummond, chairman of Terra Grain Fuels and a former Regina lawyer, in an exclusive interview Tuesday with the Leader-Post.
In the 1990s, Drummond was president and CEO of Direct Energy, a Calgary-based natural gas direct seller. Direct Energy, which sold natural gas to 1.4 million customers in Canada, was acquired by Centrica, a U.K. gas utility, for about $900 million in 2000.
Drummond, whose family owns farmland south of Regina, said he began thinking about getting into the ethanol business in February.
"There were two or three of us out there and we got talking about the price of wheat ... and the price of crude oil. Then we got talking that the pricing dynamics must be very favourable for ethanol.
"From that point on, we got on to a pretty fast track,'' Drummond said.
He contacted his former executive vice-president at Direct Energy, Tim LaFrance, to do due diligence on a proposed ethanol plant. "I felt we had to assess the business opportunity in the North American context of (ethanol) being an energy commodity,'' Drummond said.
With ethanol replacing MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether) as an octane enhancer in gasoline in the U.S. and with the federal government's commitment to five-per-cent renewable fuels content in gasoline and diesel in Canada by 2010, the time was right to build an ethanol plant in Saskatchewan, Drummond said.
I took on the easy part, raising all the money," Drummond said with a chuckle.
Drummond and his partners -- "family, friends and business associates'' -- will put up the lion's share of the equity.
"It really will provide significant additional demand for wheat in the province,'' Drummond said.

Gary Drummond, chairman of Terra Grain Fuels, says there are several reasons the company is holding producer meetings in 28 communities, including Imperial and Bethune on Thursday.
"Feed wheat, historically, has been the product of climatic problems,'' said Drummond, a Regina lawyer who made his fortune in the natural gas business in Calgary before founding Terra Grain Fuels in early 2006.
It's paid back out of the first 75 per cent of their scheduled deliveries,'' Drummond said. "It's geared to allow the farmer, the producer, to lock-in some of the input costs ahead of the rush.''
Drummond said the public meetings have been successful in identifying farmers who are interested in supplying grain to the plant.
