  • 2. Alberta’s Reduction Commitments Conservation & Energy Efficiency 24Mt Carbon Capture & Storage 139Mt Greening Energy Production 37Mt Total Reductions 200Mt 200Mt • 2050 -- 200Mt reduction or 50% below projected business as usual and 14% below 2005 levels Net Emissions * Modified slightly from: Alberta’s Climate Change Strategy 2008Source: Alberta 2008 Climate Change Strategy 2
  • 3. Objectives of Alberta’s CCS Program• Demonstration at a large scale• Build confidence.• Contribute to the global effort.• Reduce Alberta’s carbon emissions.• Develop a world class regulatory framework .
  • 4. CCS Funding Program• $2 billion (CDN) announced in July 2008• Purpose is to sequester 5Mt annually from 3-5 commercial scale projects starting in 2015.• 3 of 4 agreements signed to date
  • 5. Alberta CCS Projects Edmonton Calgary
  • 6. Alberta Carbon Trunk Line• Enhance Energy, Northwest Upgrading• 1.6 Mt, EOR• Funding • $495 M – Alberta Gov’t • $63.3 M – Federal Gov’t
  • 7. Quest• Shell Canada, Chevron, Marathon• 1.2 Mt, Deep saline formation (potential for future EOR)• Funding • $745 M – Alberta Gov’t • $120 M – Federal Gov’t

  • 10. Regulatory Framework Assessment (RFA) - Objectives• To develop a world-class regulatory framework for CCS that meets the needs of large scale CCS projects: – Review the regulatory regime in Alberta and existing CCS frameworks in other jurisdictions. – Develop recommendations to refine and guide legislation, regulations and regulatory processes.• Ensure that the regulatory process is efficient, transparent and comprehensive.
  • 11. Regulatory Framework Assessment - Scope• The RFA is looking at a number of issues relating to CCS in Alberta, including: o Closure criteria. o Methodology and rate for the Post Closure Stewardship Fund. o Clear roles and responsibilities for Alberta regulators. o How stakeholder engagement will take place.• A number of recommendations go to the Alberta Government in late-2012.
