Enhance Energy Inc (EII) in partnership with Fairborne Energy Ltd (FE) is undertaking the construction of an Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (CO2 pipeline network and CO2 capture facilities) in Alberta, Canada.

The project involves the construction of a 14 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) CCS plant. It will be developed in three phases.

The first phase includes the construction of a refinery with a processing capacity of 50,000 barrels per day (BPD) of bitumen.

The project includes the construction of a 240km pipeline to transport 14MTPA of CO2 at full capacity. The project receives carbon dioxide from Agrium's Redwater fertilizer plant (existing) with an initial capacity to process 800mt/day of CO2 and the North West Redwater Partnership's Sturgeon upgrader (new) with an initial capacity to process 50,000BPD of bitumen.

The project will capture CO2 emissions and will upgrade, transport and distribute the CO2 through the pipeline.

Caber Engineering Inc has been appointed as FEED Contractor, Opsco Manufacturing (Opsco) as supply equipment, PinAcle Stainless Steel (PinAcle) as a supply of corrosion-resistant stainless steel piping products Opsco as supplier contract equipment and KTI Limited (KTI) as an environmental consultant for the project.

In September 2007, The Alberta Energy and Utilities Board approved the construction and operation of the oil sands bitumen upgrader.

In February 2008, Alberta Environment issued final approvals.

SAW Engineering has been awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) contract for the project.

In November 2009, Letters of Intent signed for EII and North West Upgrading with US$466 million from Alberta provincial and US$59 million from Canadian national governments.

In September 2010, environmental approval was granted by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA).

In April 2011, the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) issued a license for construction and operation of ACTL.

In November 2012, construction of the first phase has received approval. In September 2013, ground breaking ceremony was held.

In March 2014, site earth work was approximately 50% completed. As of August 2015, the project is expected to secure US$379 million funding for the project.

Construction works are underway and are scheduled to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2017. The plant is scheduled to be operational in 2018.


The project involves the construction of a 14MTPA CCS plant at Redwater in Alberta, Canada.
