Carbon capture through innovative commercial structuring in the Canadian oil sands: a project overview of the North West Sturgeon Refinery
29th April 2013
The fully integrated project will capture, use for EOR and geologically sequester over 1.2 million tonnes per year of 99% pure, dry CO2, the equivalent to removing approximately 225,000 vehicles from the road. The CO2 from the NWSR will also be the anchor supply for the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL), an open access CO2 pipeline being developed by Enhance Energy Inc. The ACTL has public funding which will support the development of a common CO2 handling infrastructure for EOR in Alberta.
The willingness of the Alberta and Canadian governments to support large scale CCS projects with the creation of a CCS Fund and development of an effective CO2 storage regulatory framework was essential for the CO2 capture component of the NWRP and ACTL to proceed.
