|Climate Change Description:|
Saskatchewan has implemented the approximately $1.47 billion, 120 megawatt carbon capture and storage project at the Boundary Dam coal-fired power plant, which includes $240 million from the federal government.
The Boundary Dam facility began commercial operation in October 2014 and is able to capture up to 1MT of CO2 per year or 90% of the unit’s GHG emissions. These emission reductions are not listed to avoid double counting since the Boundary Dam emission reductions are listed by the federal government.
The Weyburn-Midale project is the largest capture and storage demonstration site in the world. Saskatchewan is continuing to fund research related to the Weyburn reservoir through the Saskatchewan CO2 Oilfield Use for Storage and EOR Research Project. Saskatchewan has been injecting carbon dioxide into the subsurface since 1984.
