Project Description: 

This was a large-scale project in northeastern British Columbia, Canada, which developed a feasibility study for a large natural gas-processing plant for CCS into deep saline formations of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB).  Goals of the project were to verify and validate the technical and economic feasibility of using brine-saturated carbonate formations for large-scale CO2 injection and show that robust monitoring, verification, and accounting (MVA) of a brine-saturated CO2 sequestration project can be conducted cost-effectively. The project's feasibility study included a risk-based approach to define the MVA strategy, modeling and simulation, site characterization, risk assessment, and development of a cost-effective MVA plan.

Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at its London meeting in October 2009.
