Intending to extend the life of its oilsands, Alberta’s oil and gas industry is investing heavily into blue hydrogen and an alliance to achieve net-zero emissions.

The ventures were made in the aftermath of Keystone XL’s demise. The industry is now banking on carbon capture. Air Products Canada is moving ahead with a $1.3-billion carbon capture and hydrogen facility in Edmonton, which aims to capture about 95 per cent of carbon from natural gas that is used to produce hydrogen-fueled electricity.

The oilsands’ big players, including Suncor Energy, Cenovus Energy, Canadian Natural Resources, MEG Energy and Imperial, have allied with one another to achieve net-zero emissions.

  1. John Clark says:

    Considering Kenny’s credibility rating stands at zero, it would be wise for us to consider carbon dioxide when pumped downhole turns into a liquid at about 4000 feet. As a liquid, it is absorbed by residual oil which lays at about the same depth… Carbon Dioxide is a solvent to oil.

    This way more conventional oil can be brought back up and when it does, reports from Saskatchewan who bought carbon dioxide off N Dakota reported carbon dioxide venting back into the atmosphere for hours, sounding like a Jet taking off.
