Gas Liquids Engineering Ltd. (GLE) has announced the commencement of front end engineering and design on a CO2 pipeline, compression, and sequestration system for Whitecap Resources (Whitecap), in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Whitecap currently operates one of the largest anthropogenic carbon sequestration projects in the world, transporting CO2 from two major industrial emitters to its existing carbon capture utilization and storage hub located near Weyburn, Saskatchewan. GLE is supporting Whitecap’s planned decarbonization strategy, involving expansion of the existing hub to include transportation for multiple additional industrial CO2 sources to new sequestration wells.
“GLE is pleased to support a carbon sequestration leader such as Whitecap Resources, which already has an extensive portfolio of CO2 facilities, pipelines, and operational expertise in their Canadian operations,” said Stuart MacKenzie, CEO at GLE. “This sequestration project would be a natural extension of their current business, and we are looking forward to applying GLE’s experience from past major CO2 projects towards achieving an efficient system design.”
