Shell Canada Energy, on behalf of the Athabasca Oil Sands Project, a joint venture among Shell Canada Energy (60%), Chevron Canada Limited (20%), and Marathon Oil Canada Corporation (20%), is advancing Quest. Quest is a fully integrated carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, meaning it would capture, transport, inject, store, and monitor CO2.

Over 1 million tonnes of CO2 per year would be captured from the Scotford Upgrader. This 98% pure CO2 would then be transported safely by pipeline to an injection location north of Shell Scotford and stored permanently more than 2 kilometers deep under thick layers of impermeable geologic formations.
