OTTAWA — The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is seeking public comment for a report on the Shell Quest Carbon Capture and Storage Project in Alberta.

Shell Canada Ltd. wants to open the Shell Quest CCS Project to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from their existing oil sands bitumen upgrader, the Scotford Upgrade, northeast of Edmonton.

The Shell Quest CCS project would involve the capture, transport, injection and storage of carbon dioxide.

The agency’s report will detail potential adverse environmental effects from the project, the significance of those effects and measures to mitigate any significant adverse environmental effects.
