Carbon Capture and Storage
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) represents the largest point source contribution to emission reduction in Canada with the other smaller sources requiring contributions from many distributed actions across Canadian society. Also, the carbon capture and storage (CCS) sources are located within Canada’s world-class geological storage potential area in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Working with global alliance partners, WorleyParsons provides comprehensive services for carbon capture and storage developments, from the earliest stages of evaluation to full-scale implementation and monitoring.
WorleyParsons Select, Deliver and Improve specialists offer customers innovative solutions for every stage of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions management backed by years of experience.
Our EcoNomics™ and Carbon EcoNomics™ services provide identification and quantification of both project-based and external risks of the CCS program. These experts then develop mitigation strategies that reduce program risks to acceptable thresholds as efficiently as possible. These evaluation steps help to pinpoint the CCS option that offers the maximum return for our customers.
Examples of significant Canadian CCS projects include:
- Encana - Weyburn CO2-EOR Program
Weyburn is one of the world’s largest CO2 injection, recovery and storage projects with 5,000 tons of CO2 / day injected into the Weyburn Field. WorleyParsons services covered all phases of field development and EOR program design and implementation, including scoping, planning, cost estimating, scheduling, FEED and detailed design, permitting, construction management and field operations
- Enbridge - Alberta Saline Aquifer Project (ASAP)
WorleyParsons participated in Phase 1 which involved identifying suitable locations for the long term storage of carbon dioxide in deep saline aquifers. Our services included conceptual design and cost estimating of compression and dehydration facilities as well as CO2 pipeline to sequestration site to support Enbridge’s application for federal and provincial funding.
