In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from their oil sand bitumen upgrader, the Scotford Upgrader in Edmonton, Alberta, Shell Canada Limited is proposing the Shell Quest CCS Project, a fully integrated project involving the capture, transport, injection and storage of carbon dioxide.
Federal conclusions regarding the potential for adverse environmental effects from the project, their significance and appropriate measures to mitigate any issues has been detailed in a screening report.
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has invited the public to comment on the screening report for the environmental assessment, on behalf of Natural Resources Canada and the Canadian Transportation Agency. In taking the federal decisions required for this project to proceed, the groups will consider the screening report finding and public comments received by 13 April 2012 will be considered.
