Enhance Energy EOR Project is a project of Enhance Energy, a Calgary, Alberta, Canada-based company which claims that is is "currently building the world’s largest carbon capture and storage project; the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL). This 240 kilometre pipeline employs safe proven technology to gather, compress and store up to 14.6 million tonnes of CO2 per year at full capacity ... the stored CO2 will be injected into depleted oil reservoirs and result in the recovery of over 1 billion barrels of oil. This will translate into more than $15 billion in royalties for Alberta."
