Quest CCS Project: Reducing CO2 emissions from Shell's Athabasca Oil Sands Project
Carbon Capture and Storage technology, or CCS, has been identified as one of the most promising technologies to make a significant contribution to worldwide efforts to mitigate climate change by reducing emissions from large industrial facilities.
Beginning in 2015, Shell's Carbon Capture and Storage Project, called Quest, will capture more than one million tonnes of CO2 per year from the Scotford Upgrader in Alberta, Canada and store it deep underground, beneath several layers of impermeable rock layers. The Quest Project will be the first CCS Project in the world to be implemented at an oil sands upgrading operation
View this short animation to find out how the Quest Project will use existing technologies used in the oil and gas industry for decades to: capture, transport and inject CO2 safely and permanently more than two km underground.
