Responding to a very large number of carbon sequestration inquiries, the Alberta Government issued an Information Letter that proposes a centralized hub model for storing carbon in the province.
This week, Tristan Goodman, the President of the Explorers and Producers Association of Canada (EPAC) joins the podcast to offer his perspective on Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) policy. In addition to central hubs, EPAC proposes that Alberta consider a distributed model for storing carbon throughout the province.
Here are some of the questions Peter and Jackie asked Tristan: What are the advantages of considering distributed carbon storage, in addition to centralized hubs? What types of projects are better suited for a distributed model? Are CCUS projects associated with Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) or depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs treated differently than other projects? How are these issues being managed in the United States?
