Tim Bertels - The Quest CCS project Canada - Presentation at the Global CCS Institute Members’ Meeting: 2011

  1. 1. QUEST Carbon Capture & Storage Project Alberta, Canada Presentation to GCCSI Members Meeting Melbourne, Australia October 2011 Tim Bertels, Manager Global CCS Portfolio Shell International E&P, The Hague.Copyright SHELL CANADA ENERGY 1

DEVELOPING CCS TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE FUTURE Weyburn Mongstad Quest Midale Longannet Boundary Dam Peterhead Aberthaw WestcarbShell involvement in CCS Projects; Gorgon Industrial scale projects in construction Industrial scale projects planned Demonstration projects, joint industry partnerships Otway 3
  4. 4. CCS IN CANADA/ALBERTA GHG emissions profile and mitigation options – Canada A significant part of GHG mitigation plans for both Canada and Alberta Technically possible today  Builds on proven components CCS needs…  Government leadership and financial Source: NRTEE ‘Achieving 2050: A Carbon Pricing Policy for Canada”, 2009 support GHG emissions profile and mitigation options – Alberta  Public awareness and acceptance  Demonstration projects Canada & Alberta providing partial funding for CCS demonstration projects Source: Alberta 2008 Climate Change Strategy 4
  6. 6. QUEST CCS PROJECT - OVERVIEWQuest CCS Project - fully integrated CCS(capture, transport, storage & MMV)JV among Shell (60%); Chevron (20%);and Marathon (20%)Improves GHG performance of OilSands operationsCapture at the Scotford Upgrader from 3Hydrogen UnitsCapacity to capture over one milliontonnes of CO2 per year or up to 35% ofScotford Upgrader direct emissionsEquivalent of taking 175,000 vehicles offthe roadCO2 transported by pipeline 6
  7. 7. CO2 CAPTURE SCOPE Treated Gas CO2 to to HMU Pipeline Amine CO2 CO2 Capture Regeneration Compression Feed Gas from HMU DehydrationUp to 1.2 million tonne CO2 per year nameplate from 3 steam methane reformers, 1.08million tonne CO2 per year on-streamActivated amine (Shell ADIPX) & multistage compression with dehydrationCO2 pipeline operating in the dense phase 7

  9. 9. QUEST PROPOSED PIPELINE ROUTE Surface CasingThe Quest CCS Project is located in the Cement IntermediateIndustrial Heartland Region, Casing Tubing Main Injectionapproximately 5 km northeast of Fort CasingSaskatchewanThe pipeline will travel up to 90 km northof the Scotford Upgrader to the choseninjection locationsNorth Saskatchewan River crossing SALT SEALSdrilled Packer Assembly SHALE SEALSLine break shut off valves at 15 km TARGET FORMATION PerforationsLine size up to 12 inches in diameter allow CO2 to penetrate the formation 9
  10. 10. QUEST CO2 STORAGE OPTIONSQuest premised on Saline Aquifer rather than EOR or depleted Storage OptionfieldBasal Cambrian Sands (BCS) selected  Primary storage zone is a deep saline aquifer formation called the Basal Cambrian Sand (BCS) located approximately 2300 metres deep  Multiple caprock and salt seal layers  The BCS is well below hydrocarbon bearing formations and potable water zones in the region  Relatively few wells drilled into the BCS  Significant storage capacity … 10
  11. 11. QUEST CO2 INJECTION & MONITORING Wells and Drilling  FDP expected to have 3 – 7 wells Surface Casing Cement Conventional drilling methods Intermediat  e Casing Tubing Main Injection Casing  Multiple steel casings for wells Measurement, Monitoring & Verification (MMV)  Subsurface and surface monitoring  Over 50 technologies considered: SALT SEALS Packer Assembly SHALE SEALS  Well monitoring TARGET FORMATION Perforations  Geophysical monitoring allow CO2 to penetrate the formation  Geochemical monitoring  Surface monitoring 11
  12. 12. QUEST CCS PROJECT SCHEDULE FiledQuest 2011 Development Program Progress Project Definition  Integrated planning and decision based process  Complete Field Development Plan  Advance front end definition – Basic Design Engineering Package Stakeholder Engagement  Consultation with landowners and municipalities  Community Open Houses and workshops  Public outreach and education 12
  13. 13. QUEST CCS PROJECT – EARLY LEARNING Front-end loading  Engineering, Exploration, Appraisal not Exploration, Appraisal, Engineering Capture  Cost efficiency key e.g. design class  Steam & power integration key value levers Storage  Appraisal: eliminating uncertainty without compromising reservoir integrity  Significant modelling capability required, hydrogeology understanding vital Operations  Process integration challenges, especially transient conditions  Dispersion modelling MMV  Adaptive, many technologies available, value of information is the determinant 13
  14. 14. WHAT IS NEEDED TO PROGRESS CCS GLOBALLY Support for CCS from key stakeholders Sense of urgency to deliver, support to frontier CCS projects Global knowledge sharing to enable best practice Engineering at scale to deliver cost reduction Infrastructure planning and reservoir characterisation to reduce costs Clear signal (from the regulator) now of the CCS business model 2020+ 14
