Shell unveiled plans Thursday to begin a $20-million carbon dioxide storage research project that could eventually see one million tonnes of CO2 from the Scotford upgrader near Edmonton injected into a 2,000-metre-deep well.

The provincial government said it will kick in $6.6 million over three years as part of its effort to encourage the development and commercialization of CO2 capture and storage.

Rob Seeley, manager of the Shell Quest study, says a public information session Thursday in Fort Saskatchewan is the first step in the process.

“This is for public awareness. Next we will drill three to five test wells, and then do more work to prepare our application,” he said.

The first well will be at the upgrader site, with the next 10 kilometres away and a third, 30 kilometres distant.
