Serving as a storage site for the world's first commercial postcombustion carbon capture, utilization, and storage project from a coal-fired power generation facility, the Aquistore project commenced injection operations in April 2015 at a site near SaskPower's Boundary Dam Power Station. The Energy & Environmental Research Center, through its Plains CO2 Reduction (PCOR) Partnership, is collaborating with the Petroleum Technology Research Centre and SaskPower to continue PCOR Partnership efforts to numerically model and interpret the performance of the project's injection well and observation well to improve monitoring, verification, and accounting strategies based on history-matching and predictive simulation results.
