Net Greenhouse Gas Impact of Storing CO2 Through Enhanced Oil Recovery

An analysis of on-site and downstream GHG emissions from CO2-EOR crude oil production in Western Canada

Net Greenhouse Gas Impact of Storing CO2 Through Enhanced Oil Recovery

Published June 21, 2013

By Matt McCulloch, Rich Wong, Adam Goehner

ICO2N commissioned the Pembina Institute to analyze the greenhouse gas impact of storing CO2 through the process of enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The analysis looked at five different scenarios for quantifying CO2 emissions — both emissions associated with operating an EOR site as well as those associated with the oil that is produced.

Strengthening Alberta’s greenhouse gas regulations

Published April 19, 2013

By Simon Dyer

Alberta’s Specified Gas Emitters Regulation (SGER) is due for renewal in 2014, and the Government of Alberta is currently considering revisions to the regulation. A stronger SGER would help Alberta reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and enhance social license to operate for sectors, such as the oilsands, that face continued scrutiny of environmental performance.

This briefing note outlines the Pembina Institute's perspective on how Alberta needs to strengthen its greenhouse gas regulations.
