Assessing the future use of carbon capture, utilization and storage in Canada’s oil and gas sector

Canada’s oil and gas sector has been an early innovator and adaptor of CCUS. The potential for using CCUS in emissions reduction is most significant in Western Canada, though there is also an opportunity to use it in Ontario and Quebec.

According to the IEA, 21 CCUS projects capture 40 Mt of CO2 globally each year (IEA, 2021a). Most CCUS projects operate in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Over 140 CCS projects could be operational globally by 2025, capturing at least 145 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of carbon dioxide emissions.
