View this and more in our encyclopedia of the oil crash



Shell Canada’s $1.3-billion Quest project aims to pipe 1.1 million tonnes of liquefied CO2 from its Scotford upgrading facility north of Edmonton and bury it more than two kilometres underground. Funded in part by the Alberta government, Quest will be the first oil sands carbon-capture and storage project, and is meant to demonstrate that oil sands production need not contribute to global warming.
