REVIEW OF CO2 EOR TRANSITIONING TO CCS: FOLLOW-ON DEEP DIVE STUDY OF TEXAS AND ALBERTA

The purpose of CCS is to reduce emissions of GHG to the atmosphere as a climate change mitigation activity. However, given the relatively high costs associated with CCS, coupling it with Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) could provide a critical financial incentive to facilitate development of CCS projects in the near term. In the 2016 study “Best Practice in Transitioning from CO2 EOR to CO2 Storage,” we found that there are no specific technological barriers in transitioning and converting a pure CO2 EOR operation into a CO2 storage operation. At the same time, there are a number of legal, regulatory and economic differences which must be addressed. In 2017, the CO2 Capture Project asked ERM to conduct a deeper analysis of these issues in two jurisdictions: Texas in the U.S.A. and Alberta in Canada. We present these results at this side event.

Side Event 43

CANADA SHOWS THE WORLD HOW CCS IS A MAJOR WIN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND ENERGY

Canada is committed to taking strong climate action through its support for CCS (among other options) at both the national and provincial levels. Saskatchewan and Alberta are CCS pioneers with some of the world’s largest geological storage projects (EOR) as well as a coal power retrofit. When coupled with the Federal Government’s Emissions Performance Standard on coal-fired power generation, CCS applications have an increasingly compelling business case in Canada’s power and industrial sectors for enhanced environmental and sustainable resource outcomes.

Side Event 44

CARBON PRICING POLICY DESIGN

This panel will review experiences with cap-and-trade and carbon-tax policies, and draw lessons from those experiences. Panelists will also examine the choice between – and design of – such policies, through a political-economy lens, in order to highlight important public policy principles and policy options in carbon-pricing-policy design. The panel will draw in part on a paper by Joseph Aldy - “The Political Economy of Carbon Pricing Policy Design”.

Side Event 46

CANADIAN INNOVATION FOR A LOW-CARBON FUTURE

This panel will bring together a diverse group of Canadian experts to discuss the role of innovation to drive down GHG emissions while continuing to foster strong economic growth.

Side Event 47

CANADIAN ELECTRICITY SECTOR TRANSITION

Canada’s electricity systems are over 80% non-emitting and among the cleanest in the world but opportunities remain for modernization and renewal while ensuring affordability and reliability. This panel will discuss various mechanisms, programs and approaches necessary to further accelerate the low carbon transition.
