Online Open House February 23: Northeast BC Geological Carbon Capture and Storage Atlas Project
Vancouver, BC – February 6, 2023 – Geoscience BC is hosting an online open house to present the results of the Northeast BC Geological Carbon Capture and Storage Atlas Project on February 23 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Pacific. Published in January 2023, the Atlas identified, assessed, mapped and catalogued carbon dioxide storage potential in northeast British Columbia’s portion of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.
Researchers from Canadian Discovery will present the research and findings, which are key to understanding carbon management potential in British Columbia. Geological carbon capture and storage (CCS) can help to reduce the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by storing it below the Earth’s surface. The early-stage public, peer-reviewed research includes geoscience data mapped against the locations of First Nation communities, cities and towns, stationary carbon dioxide emitters, existing roads and pipeline infrastructure to inform discussion and decisions about potential carbon capture storage, carbon management and low carbon hydrogen projects. The online open house is intended for communities, Indigenous groups, land owners and interested groups.
The project’s research team is also planning to present a technical talk at the SPE Canadian Energy Technology Conference and Exhibition, Calgary, on March 15, 2023 (https://www.spe-events.org/canadianenergytechnology/welcome).
If you have any questions about the online open house, you can email Virginie Pochard Linage at firstname.lastname@example.org.
