Tackling CO2 Emissions Goals with Large-Scale Carbon Capture & Storage (SK)

Event Time and Date

  • November 4, 2021
    2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Venue: Online



In order to meet targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, many organizations in Saskatchewan are reviewing carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCS/CCUS) projects. Large emitters are looking at projects to capture CO2 before it enters the atmosphere and either store the CO2  deep underground or use it to support enhanced oil recovery projects (EOR).

CCS is an effective method of dramatically reducing emissions. However, CCS projects are highly technical and present a number of legal and regulatory risks. In this webinar, presented by the International CCS Knowledge Centre and MLT Aikins LLP, we’ll offer an overview of the CCS landscape and the technical requirements and legal risks involved in CCS projects.


The Changing CCS Landscape

  • An overview of the importance and applicability of emission reduction targets, the Canadian government’s renewed interest in CCS and the role of incentives, and the role HUBs/clusters play in maximizing infrastructure to ensure global emission reductions

What You Need to Know About Storage

  • A summary of the Petroleum Technology Research Centre’s Aquistore project, focusing on the technical requirements for storing CO2 safely

Understanding the Regulatory Landscape

  • An overview of Saskatchewan’s regulations governing CCS and carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) projects

Timelines and Processes for Successful Deployment

  • A summary of the technical requirements for the steps and stage gates of a CCS project, and a look at the importance of feasibility and front-end engineering design studies and how they support final investment decisions

Getting from the Discussion to the Deal

  • An overview of the techniques for moving your CCS/CCUS project forward, including how to use NDAs, MOUs, Collaboration Agreements and Definitive Agreements
