Since 1994 SCG has been involved in geological studies for acid gas disposal in Alberta and British Columbia. In the past few years, this work has expanded to include proposed CO2 sequestration schemes.
SCG has provided the geological framework for the W.A.S.P. Project (Wabamun Area CO2 Sequestration Project) being conducted by the University of Calgary.
An SCG report is available on the Nisku Formation of the study area (Study Flyer).
