Natural Resources Canada – Carbon Capture & Storage in Canada – Claude Gauvin, Director of Energy Technology Policy Officer – Global CCS Institute Regional Meeting Washington DC – January 2012

  1. 1. Carbon Capture & Storage in Canada “Carbon capture and sequestration technology holds enormous potential to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions as we use our own energy resources to power our economy.” Prime Minister Stephen Harper February 19, 2009 Claude Gauvin, Director of Energy Technology Policy Office of Energy Research and Development, Natural Resources Canada January 19, 2012
  2. 2. Overview • CCS is critical for reconciling an economically important energy sector with climate change objectives • Canada is taking action to address challenges and advance CCS • Significant investments in demonstration projects are proceeding • Domestic and international engagement
  3. 3. Energy – Important to Canada’s economic prosperity • Energy means more to Canada than any other industrialized country • only OECD country with sustained oil production growth • Stable and secure energy supplier • Major consumer • $84B in exports in 2009, primarily oil and gas • 23.4% of total exports • In 2009, energy represented 6.7% of GDP, with direct employment of about 263,000 people 1.8% 6.7% 20.6% 23.4% 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% Investment Exports GDP Employment Energy as a Percentage of Canadian Total (2009)
  4. 4. Canada’s Approach to CCS • Recognizes the potential for CCS to enable continued production and use of fossil fuels in a way that: • Protects the environment by reducing GHG emissions; • Enhances energy security by enabling continued development of Canada’s vast resources; • Enables Canada to benefit from its natural advantage in CCS by promoting innovation in Canada’s clean energy technology sector. • Targets investments and actions to facilitate the adoption of CCS in the medium to long term • Builds on several years of domestic and international work: • Canada’s Clean Coal and CO2 Capture and Storage Technology Roadmaps; • Canada-Alberta ecoENERGY CCS Task Force (2008); • G8 Gleneagles (2005) and Toyako-Hokkaido (2008) Summits; • U.S.-Canada Clean Energy Dialogue (2009).
  5. 5. – 5 –– 5 –– 5 – Opportunities for CCS in Canada Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin 2009 Facility GHG Emissions (Mt CO2 Eq) Amounts of 2 Mt or less are not shown St. Lawrence River Basins Hudson Bay Basins Labrador Basins Atlantic Basins Baffin Basin Canadian Arctic Island Basin Southwestern Ontario Basins Intramontane Basins Beaufort- Mackenzie Basin AB 117 SK 22 ON 49 QC 20 NS 11 BC 13 NB 10 Gulf of St. Lawrence Basins NL 4
  6. 6. Canada has Experience in CO2 Injection & Storage Enhanced Oil Recovery using CO2 Acid gas operations Deep Saline Formation Storage projects Gas pipeline infrastructure CO2 pipeline infrastructure
  7. 7. Role of CCS in GHG Emissions Reduction Strategy CCS market penetration will require incentives to reduce CO2 emissions Source: NRTEE ‘Achieving 2050: A Carbon Pricing Policy for Canada’, 2009 260 Mt Canada’s commitment: 17% reduction by 2020
  8. 8. CCS Challenges • Economic gap – between costs and incentives • Technical risks – new technologies • Regulatory frameworks not yet fully in place • Public acceptance • Time pressures: technology lock-in
  9. 9. EOR can assist the economics CCS – In-Situ Oil Sands CCS – Chemicals / Fertilizers / Upgraders (CFU) CCS – Coal Power Generation Wind Power Vehicle Efficiency Nuclear CO2-EOR CO2- EOR CO2- EOR
  10. 10. Canada is Taking Action to Advance CCS • Research and development • Demonstration projects • Domestic and international engagement • Legal and regulatory frameworks • Public outreach
  11. 11. TransAlta - Pioneer Project: Coal-fired electricity Capacity: 1 Mt/yr Public $: $342.8M fed + 436M prov Shell - Quest Project: Oil sands Capacity: 1.2 Mt/yr Public $: $120M fed + $745M prov Enhance - Alberta Carbon Trunk Line Project: Oil sands & pipelines Capacity: 14 Mt/yr Public $: $63.2M fed + $495M prov Weyburn-Midale CCS Project Project: Gasification, MMV Capacity: 2.8 Mt/yr Public $: $15.2M fed + $3.8M SK + $1.05M AB SaskPower - Boundary Dam Project: Coal-fired electricity Capacity: 1 Mt/yr Public $: $240M fed Canada’s Investments in Demonstration Projects $3 billion in public funding, $7 billion total investment Swan Hills Project: In-situ coal gasification Capacity: 1.3 Mt/yr Public $: $285M prov (no fed $) Spectra - Fort Nelson Project: Natural gas processing Capacity: 1-2 Mt/yr Public $: $7.4M fed + $3.4M prov
  12. 12. Summary • The energy sector is a critical component of the Canadian economy • Fossil fuels will remain important for the next few decades . • CCS is one component of Canada’s approach to reducing GHG emissions. • Canada supports R&D, demonstration, regulatory development and public engagement in CCS • Canada is engaged domestically and internationally
