Shell CCS project receives conditional approval

Shell Canada is one step closer to implementing the first carbon capture and storage project for an oil sands operation.

The Energy Resources Conservation Board granting conditional approval to the Quest Project .

The proposed facility would capture, and permanently store more than one million tonnes of CO2 per year from its Scotford Upgrader, near Fort Saskatchewan.

"Shell is delighted with the ERCB's decision to recommend approval of our Quest Carbon Capture and Storage Project", said John Abbott, Shell's Executive Vice President of Heavy Oil, in a statement emailed to Fort McMurray News.

Last June, Shell announced that it had secured $865 million in funding from the governments of Alberta and Canada.

A final decision still has to be made by Shell and its partners.
