This large-scale fully-integrated project will collect carbon dioxide (CO2) from two industrial sources (a fertilizer plant and an oil sands upgrading facility) in Canada’s Province of Alberta industrial heartland and transport it via a 240-kilometer pipeline to depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs in central Alberta for utilization and storage in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects. The pipeline is designed for a capacity of 14.6 million tonnes CO2 per year, although it is being initially licensed at 5.5 million tonnes per year. The pipeline route is expected to stimulate EOR development in Alberta and may eventually lead to a broad CO2 pipeline network throughout central and southern Alberta.
Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at its Washington meeting in November 2013.
