The Canadian government is providing $140 million in federal grant funding to eight companies committed to developing carbon capture and storage projects in Western Canada. Each company will receive between $3 million and $30 million depending on the project proposal it submitted under the ecoENERGY Technology initiative. Some of the proposed projects chosen to receive the funding include Enhance Energy’s carbon dioxide pipeline, Husky Energy’s research and development activity to develop new methods of enhanced oil recovery, and Spectra Energy’s Fort Nelson, British Columbia exploratory project.
