Launched in 2000, this international research project studies CO2 injection and geological storage in depleted oilfields in southeastern Saskatchewan. It is operated in conjunction with two commercial CO2 floods, where huge volumes of the gas (2.8 million Mt per year) are injected to enhance oil production. The CO2, a by-product from the Dakota Gasification Company's Synfuels Plant, is delivered via a 323 km pipeline to EnCana's Weyburn field and Apache's Midale field.
The IEA research project's Final Phase (2007-2011) is building on the successes of the First Phase (2000-2004) to deliver the framework necessary to encourage implementation of CO2 geological storage worldwide. Specifically, the project will develop and demonstrate technology solutions required for the design, implementation, monitoring and verification of CO2 geological storage projects, as well as influence and accelerate good public policy development for regulations, public communications and the business environment.
