The Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) thread

The Government of Alberta and the Government of Canada have jointly announced funding plans for the Shell Quest Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project. The project will be based at Shell's Soctford Upgrader located near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta.
CCS is a process that captures CO2 from industrial sources, then transports it to a storage site and injects it underground. Underground CO2 storage is based on geological trapping mechanisms that have contained oil and gas reservoirs for millions of years.

Does the project store more than it produces?

Pairing Oil Recovery With Carbon Capture a Win-Win for U.S.

Pairing Oil Recovery With Carbon Capture a Win-Win for U.S.

Enhanced oil recovery -- a technique that stimulates aging wells -- combined with carbon capture and storage (CCS) could slash U.S. petroleum imports if there is a strong price on carbon, according to a report commissioned by an environmental group and released yesterday.

The Natural Resources Defense Council backed the report (pdf) that says combining CCS with enhanced oil recovery could boost U.S. production by 3 million to 3.6 million barrels a day.

"Significant growth is dependent on sourcing affordable carbon dioxide," said Mike Godec, vice president of Advanced Resources International, which prepared the report. "Climate legislation obviously would give enhanced oil recovery a kick start and allow the technology to grow most rapidly."

The Sacramento Valley of California would be perfect for this. There are hundreds of small depleted gas fields. It could actually enhance gas recovery also.

I know Rosetta Resources tried to this a few years ago but the pilot project never proceeded.

I also know Denbury Resources uses CO2 Sequestration in some of the EOR projects.

The sexy Librarian look is alluring but her data seems not up to date. The government of Alberta put up 2 billion dollars more than 15 years ago for a bevy of CCS projects, including funding for projects such as Shell Quest, NWR refinery and the Alberta Carbon trunkline. Shell has been operating for several years. NWR and the pipeline have been delayed for a decade but should go into service this year as the refinery starts processing bitumen and the pipeline is completed to the injection fields (for enhance oil production). Of course none of this has made CCS practical or commercially viable or spurred other private companies into adopting CO2 capture and for good reason. CCS takes a lot of energy, it reduces production efficiency of whatever it is associated with and it takes expensive equipment to work so it reduces the economics of any project both initial capital and operating. Instead of becoming less costly with time, these projects became more costly as the complexity of CCS became better known. It’s lose-lose-lose technology but makes for a nice science project or government boondoggle.

Right now, there are technologies out there but it’s very expensive,” McCuaig-Boyd said. Alberta has since wound down its $2-billion fund for CCS investments, citing the high costs.

But now some of the world’s most influential oil executives are touting CCS – now rebranded as carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) – as a way to reduce global emissions. ... over-again ... oject.html ... d-storage/
