The Alberta Government recently provided an update on the tenure application approach for small-scale and remote (SSR) carbon sequestration. To help emitters understand their local geologic carbon storage options, Canadian Discovery (CDL) has prepared a series of CO2 Storage Opportunity Maps for some of the more viable carbon storage complexes in the province. The current series of maps include:
These maps can be downloaded by clicking on the simplified depiction of the CO2 Storage Opportunities in Alberta. Additional CO2 Storage Opportunity Maps, including the Rundle Group and the Elk Point Group will be added in the coming weeks.
The Alberta SSR application approach is intended for proponents where current carbon sequestration hubs are not a viable option. Some examples that may be eligible for a SSR tenure application include facilities where transportation of carbon dioxide may add significant costs, or where a nearby hub is not yet ready to accept carbon dioxide, or at facilities already disposing waste gases on-site.
If your project is planning a SSR application, CDL can help. Our team can provide conceptual engineering of carbon capture, transportation, and injection. CDL’s deep subsurface knowledge, hydrogeologic and reservoir characterization expertise is now complemented by risk analysis, reservoir engineering and regulatory approvals; we stand ready to support your CCS strategies.
