This report summarizes the feasibility study that was undertaken for deliver Project Pioneer. This Project would have been one of the first carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects to utilise an integrated approach for CCS, and was expected to serve as a prototype for the long-term, commercial-scale application and integration of CCS technologies to achieve reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

After completion of a feasibility study and despite substantial government and industry investment, the Project was not economically feasible due to insufficient CO2 sales markets and emissions pricing in Alberta and Canada.
