New Alberta Carbon Trunk Line Fully Operational

WORLD’S LARGEST CAPACITY CO2 PIPELINE PART OF EXPANDABLE CAPTURE AND STORAGE SYSTEM

Alberta’s Industrial Heartland companies Wolf Midstream, Enhance Energy, North West Redwater Partnership and Nutrien are paving the way to a low carbon future with their announcement of the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL).  The ACTL system captures industrial emissions and delivers the CO2 to mature oil and gas reservoirs in Central Alberta for use in enhanced oil recovery and permanent storage. Pioneered in Alberta, Canada, the ACTL system is now operational.

The system includes the world’s largest capacity pipeline for CO2 from human activity, capable of transporting up to 14.6 million tonnes of CO2 per year. This is equal to the impact of capturing the CO2 from more than 2.6 million cars in Alberta. Designed with excess capacity, the system will connect more facilities and storage reservoirs in the future as demand increases for an effective solution to manage emissions.

For more information on this innovative and exciting project, visit: www.ACTL.ca.

 

Regional Labour Profile Highlights Significant Workforce Advantage

Regional Labour Profile Highlights Significant Workforce Advantage

REGIONAL LABOUR PROFILE HIGHLIGHTS SIGNIFICANT WORKFORCE ADVANTAGES

A study that considered aggregated labour data and information from employers in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland, Strathcona Industrial Area, and northeast Edmonton, determined that nearly half of the 12,000 jobs were in the chemical manufacturing industry. This statistic, along with other key employment data points, offers valuable insight into the labour market advantages available in the Industrial Heartland Region. Rail transportation, petroleum product manufacturing, and pipeline transportation are other sectors with burgeoning labour indicators that contribute to a thriving Industrial Heartland region labour market.

The Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Regional Labour Profile provides critical labour information for investors, stakeholders, and existing companies and examines competitive labour advantages to doing business in the Industrial Heartland Region. Summarized data includes an employment profile, workforce issues and recommendations, data on recruitment and retention, diversity opportunities, technology change, wage/salary information, and workforce needs and shortages. The survey methodology supporting the study was designed to provide an in-depth picture of the workforce in the Industrial Heartland region. Employers were selected to participate in the survey based on location and industry sector.

“This study will assist and inform investors and existing companies as they calculate future business and investment opportunities in and around the Industrial Heartland Region. With a 21st century, educated and diverse labour workforce, we believe the Industrial Heartland Region is well-positioned to capture more than $30 billion in new investment potential in the petrochemical energy sector,” says Mark Plamondon, Executive Director of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association.

The Industrial Heartland Region is considered a world-class location for petrochemical, manufacturing, oil and gas investment and is also Canada’s largest hydrocarbon processing region. It is a powerful economic driver for Alberta and Canada and offers attractive competitive advantages in energy diversification and industrial development.

The profile is a collaborative effort of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association, Strathcona County, Sturgeon County, Lamont County, the City of Fort Saskatchewan, the City of Edmonton, and the Government of Alberta’s Ministry of Labour & Immigration and is available for download HERE.

Government Announces Alberta Petrochemicals Incentive Program

Government Announces Alberta Petrochemicals Incentive Program

ALBERTA PETROCHEMICALS INCENTIVE PROGRAM WILL
ENHANCE ABILITY TO ATTRACT LARGE SCALE PETROCHEMICAL PROJECTS

The Government of Alberta today announced the Alberta Petrochemicals Incentive Program (APIP), designed to attract value-add petrochemical investments and encourage continued growth in the advanced chemical manufacturing sector.

“The Alberta Petrochemicals Incentive Program, as announced today, will have a significant impact on enhancing the competitiveness of Alberta when attracting large scale, value-add investments, relative to other global jurisdictions,” said Mark Plamondon, Executive Director of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association. “This program, coupled with the other tremendous competitive advantages that Alberta’s Industrial Heartland has to offer, will contribute to the attraction of an expected $30 billion in new petrochemical investments by 2030.”

With cost-advantaged natural resources, a diverse and skilled workforce, and world class infrastructure, including world-leading carbon capture and storage infrastructure, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland is well-positioned to leverage the new Alberta Petrochemicals Incentive Program and we believe it will help attract formidable investment to our region.

With more than 95% of the world’s manufactured products relying on chemistry and value-add manufacturing, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland is part of a global supply chain that produces more than 70,000 products that we use every day. Alberta is a shining example of how jurisdictions can stimulate the economy and demonstrate environmental leadership by recognizing the importance of lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
