Wolf’s Carbon Business Unit constructed and operates the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL) system – the world’s newest integrated large-scale carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) system. As of January 2021, the ACTL had safely delivered one million tonnes of CO2 to permanent storage.
Wolf’s Carbon Business Unit is focused on reducing carbon emissions through the development of new world-scale CO2 infrastructure in both Canada and abroad.
ACTL is a new, fully-integrated, world-scale Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage system which captures, transports and permanently sequesters CO2 that would otherwise be emitted to atmosphere. Wolf is the owner and operator of the system’s compression facilities at two independent capture sites, as well as the 240-kilometre ACTL pipeline that safely transports CO2 from the capture sites to mature oil fields in Central Alberta for secure storage and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects.
Designed as the backbone infrastructure needed to support Alberta’s lower carbon transition, ACTL is capable of transporting up to 14.6 million tonnes of CO2 per year. This represents approximately 20% of all current oil sands emissions or equal to the impact of capturing the CO2 from more than 4 million cars per year.
The ACTL system is the foundation of an expandable network capable of facilitating many carbon mitigation options for emitters over the long term. ACTL will support significant future emissions solutions, new utilization pathways and innovation in the carbon capture space.
