The Field Research Station (FRS) was officially opened on October 24 before a crowd of about 70 people who gathered at the University of Calgary.
Speaking at the ceremony were special guests Paul Fulton, Country Chair of Statoil Canada, and Ed McCauley, Vice-President (Research), University of Calgary. Don Lawton, Director of the Containment and Monitoring Institute, talked about operations at the FRS and new CMCRI President Sandra Odendahl served as MC.
The $7 million Field Research Station (FRS), built by CMC Research Institutes and operated by its Containment and Monitoring Institute, will play a pivotal role advancing the commercialization of carbon storage and helping industry better understand the movement of fluids underground. The site was developed with an investment by the Government of Canada’s Western Economic Diversification Program, and is supported by the University of Calgary with funds from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund.
