Aerial View of Shell Scotford near Edmonton, Alberta.
Shell Canada Energy, on behalf of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project, a joint venture among Shell Canada Energy (60%), Chevron Canada
Limited (20%), and Marathon Oil Canada Corporation (20%), is advancing Quest
Quest is a fully integrated carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, meaning it would capture, transport, inject, store, and monitor CO2
Over 1 million tonnes of CO2
per year would be captured from the Scotford Upgrader. This 98% pure CO2
would then be
transported safely by pipeline to an injection location north of Shell Scotford and stored permanently more than 2 kilometers deep under
thick layers of impermeable geologic formations.
