Abstract(unpublished)
The five-year Aquistore Project, running from July 2008 to July 2013, will investigate the feasibility of storing CO2 in a saline aquifer. The project is a joint collaborative research venture between governments and industry that will capture 500 tonnes/day of CO2 from the Consumers' Co-operative Refineries Limited's refinery in Regina, Saskatchewan. This CO2 will be transported and injected below the surface to a suitable deep saline aquifer reservoir. Storage will be monitored, measured and verified through various innovative, new technologies for several years. Extensive Measurement, Monitoring and Verification (MMV) will study and ascertain the feasibility of long-term storage as a GHG mitigation strategy. Funding of $5 million (CDN) has been committed to the Aquistore.
