The SAM project will complement the growing list of government, university and industry-sponsored projectsnow active or proposed in support of CCS development.Those studies aim to evaluate site-specic conditions attest sites or near current large CO
emitters. Regional-scale studies like SAM, which only a geological surveycan provide, show the big picture so regulators and policy makers can best guide waste generators to the best disposal options while avoiding consequentiallosses of future geothermal or groundwater resources.The SAM project builds upon our experience inevaluating the Alberta Basin’s general suitability for
sequestration, as well as completion of a series of hydrogeological evaluations of acid-gas disposal sites inAlberta and B.C. – direct analogues to large-scale CCS projects with decades of safe operation and experience.
