WORLD’S LARGEST CO2 CAPTURE AND UNDERGROUND DISPOSAL OF GHG EMISSIONS PIPELINE PROJECT COMMISSIONED IN ALBERTA

This spring, as the coronavirus pandemic battered global oil markets, a 240-km pipeline that could hold the key to Alberta’s future as an oil and gas-producing region quietly opened.

Known as the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line, the pipeline captures CO2 emitted by the new North West Redwater Sturgeon bitumen refinery, and a fertilizer plant outside Edmonton, and transports it to an oilfield where some is sequestered underground and some is used to increase oil recovery.
