The Alberta government has released the evaluation agreement outlines from both rounds of the CCS pore space application process. The CCS landscape in Alberta is rapidly evolving with pore space awards in numerous formations including the Wabamun, Belloy, Woodbend, Turner Valley, Winterburn, Rundle and the Basal Cambrian Sandstone. Below top Elk Point is probably targeting the Basal Cambrian Sandstone.

The pore space rights have been taken directly from the evaluation agreements released by the Alberta government, hub names and participants were taken from the carbon tenure RFP awards.

It is interesting that the large land awards given in the Basal Cambrian Sandstone are mostly sharing borders which will make for critical discussions, modelling and management of not only plume size but pressure fronts as well. The next critical phase is going to be de-risking the subsurface as there is limited data currently available over many of the large leases.
