Carbon dioxide capture and sequestration (CCS) in oilsands production and upgrading is a viable and proven method to meet Canada’s climate change commitments while continuing to leverage one of the country’s most valuable resources. The oilsands region is uniquely positioned to take advantage of CCS considering the existing infrastructure in place and proximity to geology favourable for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and sequestration. Carbon capture can be expanded in application to both oilsands production and in blue hydrogen generation, which can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of fossil fuels and hydrocarbon-based products. Commercial options for carbon capture technologies using amine-based solvents will be discussed, including specific examples developed for both pre- and post-combustion carbon capture solutions. The presentation will leverage information for Fluor’s extensive experience in designing and building carbon capture facilities, including Fluor’s Econamine FG+TM post-combustion capture technology.
