Husky Energy is one of Canada’s largest integrated energy companies and looks for new innovations to reduce GHG emissions in its projects.

The Lashburn project has the potential to reduce GHG emissions by capturing carbon dioxide produced from a steam assisted gravity drainage facility and storing it at a nearby oil production field.

By integrating new process equipment with existing infrastructure, the aim of the project is to capture approximately 35 tonnes of CO2 a day from a steam generator, transport it by pipeline to an existing compression facility, and inject it into a partially depleted oil reservoir. If successful, the carbon capture technology may provide an opportunity for use in larger applications in Alberta.
