We are helping to develop large-scale commercial projects and have research partnerships with industry and leading academic institutes. Our current activities include:
Shell is a partner in the Gorgon liquefied natural gas project which will include the world's largest CCS operation when complete.
The natural gas contains high concentrations of CO2 and therefore the project plans to capture 3 to 4 million tonnes of CO2 each year.
It is expected that 100 million tonnes of CO2 will be captured and stored over the life of the project.
Quest is a fully integrated CCS facility, designed to capture, transport and store more than a million tonnes of CO2 annually deep underground. By May 2019, less than four years after its start up, Quest had captured and safely stored more than 4 million tonnes of CO2.
Quest is operated by Shell on behalf of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project and was made possible through funding for CCS from the governments of Alberta and Canada, which provided C$745 million and C$120 million of funding respectively.
Shell is sharing the knowledge and lessons learned from building Quest to encourage more widespread implementation of CCS. View Quest’s knowledge sharing reports here.
