This project proposes to conduct pre-front end engineering and design and other work as a prerequisite to a decision to go forward with a $5-billion project to build and commission a polygeneration facility in Belle Plaine, Saskatchewan. If constructed, large volumes of petcoke - a low-value product of heavy oil upgrading - would be gasified and used to produce a number of products, including hydrogen, steam and sulphur, and to generate up to 500 MW in electricity to potentially displace aging coal-fired generation stations in Saskatchewan. Process CO2 would also be used by two large fertilizer plants located near the proposed polygeneration facility. Reductions in CO2 emissions would result from capturing and sequestering 80-90 percent of the CO2 from the polygeneration facility, as well as from offsetting the use of natural gas to produce hydrogen and steam at the fertilizer plants. Captured CO2 would be sequestered at enhanced oil recovery (EOR) sites and in saline aquifers in southeastern Saskatchewan.
