CALGARY, Alta. — An Alberta plan to control greenhouse gases involves reusing old oilfields that have already been harvested.
The plot includes pumping offending emissions into tapped-out oil and natural gas fields, explains Lorne Taylor, the provincial Environment minister.
Taylor predicts a $1-billion project coming on stream within five years with costs potentially being shared by the province, the federal government and the private sector. It is believed there is unlimited capacity in vacant reservoirs that are cemented and pressure-controlled.
