The Quest Carbon Capture and Storage Project is located at the Scotford Upgrader, located in Alberta, Canada, and captures, transports and stores over one million tonnes of CO2 annually. Injection operations commenced in August, 2015 and reached the milestone of one million tonnes of CO2 injected after one year of operation in August, 2016. It is projected that Quest will reach two million tonnes injected in May 2017. The capture efficiency has been better than planned, and the storage reservoir had demonstrated more than sufficient injectivity for the volumes.
