Shell Quest Site Tour
When: Thursday September 14, 2023
Time: 9:00am – 1:00pm
Limited capacity, first come first serve.
The Quest Carbon Capture and Storage facility, located at the Shell Energy and Chemicals Park, Scotford, has been operating since 2015. Quest captures over 1 million tonnes of CO2 annually from three hydrogen manufacturing units within the bitumen upgrader. To date, Quest has captured and safely stored over 8 million tonnes of CO2.
Once captured from the upgrading process, CO2 is compressed and sent via a 65km pipeline to three injection wells. There, the CO2 is sent over 2km underground for permanent storage within a saline aquifer called the Basal Cambrian Sands.
The 2-hour tour of the Quest CCS capture facility includes an overview of Quest processes, technology, subsurface geology, and monitoring plans. This is an opportunity to engage with specialists supporting Quest, and to learn how the facility was built under budget, ahead of schedule, and has performed better than premised. Following the presentation, guests will have a perimeter walking tour of the Quest capture facility.
Quest and the Scotford upgrader are operated by Shell on behalf of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project (AOSP) joint venture. The respective ownership interests of AOSP assets in aggregate, directly and indirectly, are 70% Canadian Natural Resources Limited and an affiliate, 20% Chevron Canada Limited and 10% Shell Canada Limited through certain subsidiaries.
