Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been identified as a priority emissions reduction and mitigation strategy by federal and provincial governments, industry and others. An understanding of the geological carbon dioxide (CO2) sites and storage potential for CCS in northeast British Columbia (NE BC) is a key step in supporting emissions reduction as well as providing information to inform decisions about potential hydrogen generation in BC.
This project gathered and repurposed existing data (largely from natural gas development) in British Columbia’s Northeast Region to create the Northeast BC Geological Carbon Capture and Storage Atlas. It is a step in developing a province-wide geological CCS atlas.
The project is a partnership between the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation’s (EMLI) Hydrogen Office, Geoscience BC and the BC Centre for Innovation and Clean Energy.
