Alberta: Carbon transportation and sequestration solution to transport more than 20 million tonnes of CO2 annually


Pembina Pipeline and TC Energy have joined forces to develop a carbon transportation system which, once constructed, will be able to transport more than 20 million tonnes of CO2 annually.

Dubbed the Alberta Carbon Grid (ACG), the project will leverage both existing pipelines and a newly developed sequestration hub to help Alberta effectively manage its emissions and create a lower-carbon economy in the province.

The system will be open-access and will serve as the backbone of Alberta’s emerging carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) industry, connecting the Fort McMurray region, the Alberta Industrial Heartland, and the Drayton Valley region to key sequestration locations.
