This 240-kilometre pipeline will collect CO2 from industrial emitters in and around Alberta’s Industrial Heartland and transport it to aging reservoirs throughout central and southern Alberta for secure storage in enhanced oil recovery projects.
At full capacity, the line will provide access to reservoirs capable of producing an additional one billion barrels of high-quality light crude oil. These reservoirs will safely and securely store 14.6 million tonnes of CO2 per year as the oil is produced. It will be the largest carbon capture and storage project in the world, storing six times more carbon dioxide than the Weyburn project in Saskatchewan.
In August of 2018, Enhance Energy announced a partnership with Wolf Carbon Solutions Inc. Under this agreement, Wolf will construct, own, and operate the CO2 capture and pipeline transportation assets. Enhance will continue to be the owner and operator of the CO2 utilization and sequestration portion of the ACTL project through its EOR operations.
