The Alberta Carbon GridTM (ACG) is a world leading carbon transportation and sequestration solution being designed to serve multiple customers, industries, and sectors.
A collaboration between Pembina Pipeline and TC Energy, the ACG is focused on providing CO2 transportation and sequestration solutions across Alberta by leveraging both companies’ collective skills, experience, and extensive network of pipeline infrastructure.
ACG is exploring options to potentially create several hubs throughout the province that would be designed to independently collect and store CO2 safely and cost-effectively from customers across multiple industries. ACG’s long-term vision is to annually transport and store up to 20 million tonnes of CO2 through several hubs across Alberta.
The ACG Industrial Heartland project is the first hub and current focus – this project was recently selected by the Government of Alberta to further evaluate the proposed location for safely storing carbon.
The Industrial Heartland project is ACG’s current focus and is being designed as a world leading Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) system that will provide emitters in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland with a cost-effective, safe, and reliable solution to permanently store CO2 – all while helping the province and industry meet important emissions targets.
The project will be developed in phases with the potential capability of transporting and storing up to 10 million tonnes of CO2 annually when fully developed.
In February 2022, ACG submitted an application to the Government of Alberta for the project. In March 2022, ACG was selected to move forward into the next stage of the province’s CCUS process to further evaluate one of the largest Areas of Interest (AOI) for safely storing carbon from industrial emissions in Alberta.
ACG has entered into a carbon sequestration agreement with the Government of Alberta and secured the rights to evaluate over 900,000 hectares of premiere land north of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta that could potentially support a variety of customers throughout Alberta especially those in the Industrial Heartland region. View a map of this area here. We are still in the planning stages for the full evaluation work on the project and will continue to provide updates when more details are available.
ACG is excited about the opportunity to work alongside the Government of Alberta, collaborate with industry peers, and connect with Indigenous communities and key stakeholders to advance this important work. The project is part of a multi-year effort to help meet federal emissions targets and benefit the Alberta economy. CCUS is an essential step in decarbonization and reducing GHG emissions to help meet Canada’s climate goals.

ACG’s long-term vision is to transport and store up to 20 million tonnes of CO2 annually through multiple hubs across Alberta – almost 10 percent of Alberta’s industrial emissions – contributing toward Canada’s enhanced climate targets.
The ACG Industrial Heartland project is the first hub and current focus. This project will be developed in phases with the potential capability of transporting and storing up to 10 million tonnes of CO2 annually when fully developed.
