Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL)
Start Date: 2011-01-01
End Date: 2012-12-31
The Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL) will have enormous environmental benefits for Alberta. In the initial phase, the pipeline project will have the same impact as taking 330,000 cars off the road and 2,600,000 cars at full capacity. Besides the environmental benefit for the province, the pipeline will provide Albertans with additional jobs and the incremental royalties and taxes it will generate through enhanced oil recovery.
ACTL will be capable of gathering CO2 from several sources in the Alberta’s Industrial Heartland and transporting the CO2 to existing mature oil fields throughout South-Central Alberta. These oilfields will see significant increases in production as CO2 is permanently stored in the reservoir. The capture and permanent storage of CO2 will result in significant reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases in Alberta. The initial supply of CO2 will come from North West Upgrading Inc. and Agrium Inc.
ACTL will have a design capacity of 40,000 tonnes per day with initial throughput will range from 4,600 - 5,100 tonnes per day.
