Alberta to spend $144 million on CCS in 2014

The government of Alberta has budgeted $144 million (Can.) this year for two projects it is supporting for carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) related to oil sands development (OGJ Online, Feb. 26, 2013).

The province plans to invest almost $1.3 billion over 15 years in the projects, the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line and Quest project, which are to start up in 2015 and store 2.76 million tonnes/year of carbon dioxide.

The 240-km Alberta Carbon Trunk Line will collect CO2 from Industrial Heartland upgraders and carry the gas to fields for use in enhanced oil recovery. The Quest project, led by Shell Canada, will capture and sequester in the subsurface CO2 from the Scotford upgrader near Fort Saskatchewan.
