Bilton Welding and Manufacturing Selected to Provide Pressure Vessel Manufacturing for World's Largest Carbon Capture Project

Alberta-based company to fabricate wet CO2 inlet separator vessel for world's largest carbon capture project

CALGARY, Sept. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Bilton Welding and Manufacturing (Bilton), an Innisfail, Alberta based company specializing in pressure vessel manufacturing has been commissioned to design and fabricate the wet CO2 inlet separator vessel for the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line Project (ACTL). This vessel will be used for two phase CO2 separation. Once completed, the vessel will receive an inlet feed that has CO2 gas commingled with water that will allow the space and time for the CO2 gas to separate from liquids.

The ACTL is Alberta's first, substantial, commercial carbon capture and storage (CSS) project that will focus on reducing environmental impacts, as well as being economically beneficial. Bilton will be actively involved from the design phase, providing custom energy equipment to the final steps of fabrication, which amounts to approximately eight to ten months. This project will coincide with a major expansion at the Bilton facility that will lead to adding nearly 45 full time positions over the next six months.

"Having fabricated many pressure vessels for the various stages and processes involved in both conventional and unconventional oil and gas recovery and transmission, we feel this project is a great opportunity to get involved with, and will have a substantial impact on the energy landscape in Western Canada," says Jason Greene, Sales Manager, Bilton. "It is vital to this province and our country as a whole to continue to find more environmentally friendly and cost effective methods to extract oil and gas reserves, while keeping us on the cutting edge and allowing us to remain competitive in the global market place."

"Enhance is looking forward to partnering with Bilton" said Blair Eddy, Vice President Operations, Enhance Energy Inc. "Bilton's expertise and attention to detail make us confident that the service and products they provide will ultimately advance the project's overall execution."

The ACTL will position Alberta to become a world leader in CO2 recovery and allow significant advancements in reducing Canada's carbon footprint.

About Bilton Welding

Bilton Welding and Manufacturing (Bilton) designs, engineers and manufactures custom energy equipment. Since 1992, Bilton has worked with engineering firms and oil and natural gas producers around the globe to develop equipment standards for size, capacity and any number of technical specifications. Bilton operates six manufacturing facilities in Innisfail, Alberta, Canada.

About the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL)

The ACTL will be capable of gathering CO2 from several sources in the Alberta's Industrial Heartland and transporting the CO2 to existing mature oil fields throughout South-Central Alberta. These oilfields will see significant increases in production as CO2 is permanently stored in the reservoir. The capture and permanent storage of CO2 will result in significant reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases in Alberta. The initial supply of CO2 will come from North West Upgrading Inc. and Agrium Inc.
