This project involves the capture of CO2 emissions from industrial sites in the Alberta Industrial Heartland. The captured CO2 will be transported to mature oil reservoirs in central Alberta, where it will be injected for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) purposes and permanent sequestration. The project will capture CO2 from two initial sources - a large fertilizer plant and an oil sands upgrading operation (awaiting construction) - in order to demonstrate the feasibility of a single network to collect CO2 from a large number of industrial emitters. This technology could be applied to many similar geological reservoirs throughout Alberta that are each capable of sequestering millions of tonnes of CO2. Within five years, this project could capture and sequester up to 1.9 Mt of CO2 annually, an amount equivalent to taking 358,000 cars off the road each year. There is long-term potential for capture and storage of up to 15 Mt of CO2 annually. The project could also lead to the recovery of significant amounts of oil that cannot be reached by conventional methods.
