Scientists have begun testing samples, as proponents continue to move ahead with the Fort Nelson Carbon Capture project.

A release from the US department of Energy says the core sampling, along with a ‘sophisticated well logging program’, is a key step in bringing the project to fruition. 

The testing is being conducted by the Plains CO2 Reduction (PCOR) Partnership, a group of 80 public and private partners, including nine US states and four Canadian provinces, and managed by the University of North Dakota’s Energy and Environmental Research Center.   The group says the information gleaned from the sampling will play an important role in developing simulation models and the design of the project itself.

Spectra Energy, a key member of the PCOR Partnership, is claiming the Fort Nelson project will be able to accept more than two million tons of Carbon Dioxide per year, making it one of the largest carbon sequestration projects in the world.   Spectra hopes the project could be up and running by 2012.
