Carbon Management Canada welcomes Bison to its JIP Program

Bison and Carbon Management Canada to collaborate on MMV for deep CO2 storage on a commercial scale at the Meadowbrook Storage Hub


Carbon Management Canada (CMC) is pleased to announce Bison Low Carbon Ventures (BLCV) is a new member of CMC’s Joint Industry Partnership (JIP) Program.

The collaboration between CMC and BLCV will enable monitoring in a deep saline aquifer application through the JIP program’s access to data and data gathering at BLCV’s Meadowbrook Storage Hub. CMC and Bison plan to evaluate measurement, monitoring and verification (MMV) technologies, tested at the Newell County Research Facility to both test their application and apply the learnings to Bison’s commercial scale project.

BLCV will also access, leverage and share CCS expertise and data from projects hosted at CMC’s Newell County Facility in southern Alberta, and facilitate data acquisition at Meadowbrook. CMC partners with industry, tech developers and researchers from around the world to test and develop technologies that accurately track CO2 plumes underground to further industry knowledge of carbon-dioxide injection and subsurface monitoring.

“Bison welcomes CMC participation in the early stages of development of the Meadowbrook Storage Hub,” says Matthew Brister, President of Bison Low Carbon Ventures. “We hope CMC’s experience with the Newell County Facility and the JIP’s evolving strategies can be applied to a deep saline aquifer application and we look forward to collaborating to make that happen at Meadowbrook.”

“We are pleased to welcome Bison to our Joint Industry Partnership program,” says CMC President and CEO Neil Wildgust. “CMC’s research provides essential knowledge for de-risking, scaling and monitoring geological storage in CCS deployment. This collaboration with Bison will break new ground in Alberta’s CCS research landscape.”

Since its inception in January 2016, CMC’s JIP Program has brought together industry leaders, technology innovators and researchers involved in carbon capture and storage (CCS).
