Oil and gas well drillers want federal funding to help industry decarbonize

"...The drilling sector's emissions reduction efforts have not been as high-profile as those of the oilsands industry, which is proposing a $16. 5-billion carbon capture and storage project in northern Alberta that it says will help it reach net-zero emissions from production by 2050. But Scholz said there are many things oil and gas drillers can do to lower their carbon footprint, from rig electrification to hydrogen fuel blending to investing in battery energy storage systems for oil well drilling sites..."


IEA report warns oil and gas companies against banking on carbon capture

"...In a report released Thursday, the Paris-based IEA said oil and gas companies need to start “letting go of the illusion” that “implausibly large” amounts of carbon capture are the solution to the global climate crisis. Carbon capture and storage refers to the use of technology to sequester harmful greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes and store them safely underground. In Canada, carbon capture and storage has become a key pillar of the oil and gas sector's decarbonization goals..."


Ontario funding projects aimed at using hydrogen to power electricity grid

"...The bulk of the funding is going to Atura Power to blend hydrogen with natural gas — up to 15 per cent by volume — to produce electricity at its Halton Hills Generating Station.

Energy Minister Todd Smith says it will help produce an even more sustainable energy system..."


Summerland, B.C., winery transitions to 100% renewable natural gas

"...“We just had to log in to our FortisBC account and make the change on the back end, and it took effect starting our next billing cycle,” said Pingle. “Once we did the analysis, we realized that it was going to reduce our CO2 emissions by 50,000 kilograms a year. ”In total, Pingle estimates it will reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by about 10 to 12 per cent per year..."


Climate politics heating up in British Columbia

"...He says the Conservatives, if elected next year, will eliminate the province's carbon tax, roll back climate-friendly building codes and consider nuclear power as an energy option. Rustad's comments come a day after Opposition BC United Leader Kevin Falcon called the NDP's CleanBC climate plan destructive and promised to replace it with common sense measures that fight climate change without hurting taxpayers. Falcon says BC United will ramp up liquefied natural gas export plant production in B..."
