Startec Refrigeration has been contracted to supply a refrigeration package to liquefy carbon dioxide from a fertilizer plant near Redwater as part of the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line project, the first major carbon capture storage program in the province.
“Startec is proud to lend its refrigeration expertise to this project to liquefy CO2 emissions from the Agrium Redwater fertilizer plant so it can be transported via pipeline to an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) project,” says Startec Managing Director Kristi Zadderey. “The carbon capture program itself provides environmental and economic benefits by lessening CO2 emissions while increasing economic activity in Alberta.”
The 240-km carbon trunk line pipeline will transport carbon dioxide to conventional oil recovery projects throughout central Alberta.
Carbon dioxide will first be compressed via centrifugal compressors, after which the refrigeration unit Startec designed will liquefy it so that it can be pumped into the carbon trunk line.
“Enhance is pleased to be aligned with a local Calgary-based company with comprehensive refrigeration expertise for the ACTL project,” says Enhance Energy VP of Operations Blair Eddy.
“Startec’s extensive experience made them an outstanding and obvious choice for the project.”
The 240-km carbon trunk line pipeline will transport carbon dioxide to conventional oil recovery projects throughout central Alberta where it will be injected into oil reservoirs to increase the well’s productivity by allowing the tough-to-extract oil to flow more freely, further increasing the efficiency of the process.
The Alberta Carbon Trunk Line is one of the four major carbon capture projects funded by the Alberta Government’s $2 billion investment in carbon capture. The other projects are Swan Hills Synfuels, Shell’s Quest Project and Pioneer Project.
