About Carbon Capture & Sequestration
From the Earth and
The Alberta Saline Aquifer Project (ASAP) is an industry initiative being led by Enbridge Inc. to identify deep saline aquifers in Alberta that could be used in a carbon sequestration pilot project. As a true collaborative effort, so far 37 companies are participating in the first phase of the project.
Saline aquifers are underground formations containing brine or salt water that is not suitable for agricultural purposes or for drinking. Once suitable aquifers have been identified, carbon dioxide will be injected into the deep formations, and the integrity of the process will be closely monitored.
