Alberta Carbon Trunk Line.

Project Start:2011

Project End: 2014

Project Status:Active

Project Phase: Execution

Project Location: Sturgeon

Project Cost (USD): $1 billion

Description:

Enhance Energy is building the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL). The ACTL is a 240 kilometre pipeline that 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 (EOR) projects. At full capacity the ACTL route 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. At full capacity this will be equivalent to removing 2.6 million cars from Alberta s roads. The ACTL will be the largest carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in the world. The ACTL will lay the groundwork for a cost effective industry-wide solution to the management of CO2 emissions from Alberta s upgrading, refining, power generation and petrochemical operations. The ACTL will form the backbone of a growing CO2 gathering and transportation infrastructure which encourages and enables wide scale CCS implementation.
