Shell launches new carbon-capture project

Shell Scotford officially embarked on their quest to reduce carbon emissions at the Quest Carbon Capture & Storage Start-Up Celebration on Nov. 6.

The Quest carbon-capture project will capture one million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually from Shell Scotford’s bitumen upgrader, located about 15 kilometres northeast of Fort Saskatchewan, and deposit it two kilometres underground in liquid form.
