The Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL) is the world's largest carbon capture and storage project. Pioneered in Alberta, Canada by Enhance Energy Inc., the ACTL is the first large-scale Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and storage project to actively work towards reducing environmental impacts while enriching the local economy.
This 240 kilometre pipeline employs safe proven technology to gather, compress and store up to 14.6 million tonnes of CO2 per year at full capacity. This will be equivalent to removing 2.6 million cars off the road annually, or about a third of all registered vehicles in the province. To add to this advantage, the stored CO2 will be injected into depleted oil reservoirs and result in the recovery of over 1 billion barrels of oil. This will translate into more than $15 billion in royalties for Alberta.
