Keyera and Shell Sign Agreement to Advance Clean Energy

On March 8, 2022, Keyera and Shell Canada announced execution of an MOU to collaborate on potential low-carbon projects in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland. This collaboration will leverage existing assets, adjacent lands, and strong leadership to support industry’s journey to a lower-carbon future and attract new investment opportunities to the region.  The partnership will explore opportunities to build a future open access gathering and distribution network to transport captured CO2 from Keyera and other operations in the region to Shell’s proposed Polaris CCS storage hub for safe, reliable, and economic storage. Keyera would also leverage an existing pipeline capable of transporting hydrogen to complement a hydrogen manufacturing and distribution network within the region.

“Keyera, in partnership with Shell, is building on the tremendous value proposition in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland by developing regional infrastructure that supports industrial decarbonization in Alberta and Canada. This collaborative approach leverages synergies across our region to advance industrial growth, inclusivity, and energy diversification while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, highlighting the region’s position as a leader in Canada’s low-carbon future,” said Mark Plamondon, Executive Director, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association.
