Shell to sponsor carbon capture storage research

Shell to sponsor carbon capture storage research
International research on carbon capture storage co-sponsored by Shell is set to be carried out in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

It emerged this week that Shell Canada is to be a co-sponsor of the International Energy Agency Greenhouse Gas (IEA GHG) Weyburn-Midale CO2 Monitoring and Storage Project, which is based in Regina, Saskatchewan.

The project is thought to be one of the world's three largest research missions dedicated to in-field carbon capture storage. Currently in its final phase, the project is focusing on research regarding long-term geological storage of man-made carbon dioxide, which will be shared with international partners on a regular basis.

"Deployment of carbon capture and storage and a wide range of low-carbon technologies will be needed to meet the climate change challenge," said Dave Collyer, president of Shell Canada Limited.

"Shell's sponsorship of the Weyburn-Midale CO2 Project is in step with the carbon capture and storage work we are doing in other parts of the world with research institutions, regulatory agencies, international organisations and other energy companies."

The project is hosted by EnCana's Weybun field and the Midale field owned by Apache.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18597565-ADNFCR
