CALGARY — The government of Alberta, Canada’s main oil-producing province, plans to move forward “very, very quickly” on its next carbon sequestration hub in the Cold Lake region that will serve oilsands producers, Energy Minister Sonya Savage told Reuters.

Alberta is currently accepting requests for proposals to operate an underground carbon storage hub serving the Alberta Industrial Heartland (AIH) zone near Edmonton. The process to select an operator for another hub near Cold Lake will come “on the heels” of that, Savage said in an interview late on Thursday.
