This project focuses on investigating the geological, technical and economic feasibility of a world-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project associated with Spectra Energy's existing gas processing plant in Fort Nelson, B.C., the largest sour gas processing plant in North America. Raw gas in the Fort Nelson area contains high natural levels of CO2, which is stripped away during processing and is currently vented to the atmosphere. If the project is proven feasible, the CO2 would be compressed, dehydrated and cooled into a concentrated stream and then injected into deep saline formations, two and a half kilometres underground, for permanent sequestration. The project is designed to demonstrate the technical feasibility of injecting large volumes of sour CO2 into deep saline formations for permanent storage. If successful, it will lay the groundwork for one of the largest carbon capture and storage projects of its kind in the world.
