Regulations are current to 2019-11-19 and last amended on 2018-11-30. Previous Versions

SCHEDULE 3(Paragraphs 9(2)(d) and 11(1)(b))Information on Section 10 Requirements

  • 1 If a front end engineering design study referred to in paragraph 10(a) of these Regulations has been carried out, the following information to summarize that study:

    • (a) an overall description of the construction project for the carbon capture and storage system, including technical drawings and documents that describe

      • (i) the configuration and layout of the power plant in which the unit is located when it is operating with an integrated capture element of the system,

      • (ii) the transportation element of the system, and

      • (iii) the site of the storage element of the system;

    • (b) an estimate of capital cost of the construction project, including a summary of the analysis that led to that estimate and a justification for the margin of error of that estimate;

    • (c) a summary of the safety review of the capture element of the carbon capture and storage system;

    • (d) a summary of the risk assessment of the carbon capture and storage system;

    • (e) a summary of the strategy to mitigate those risks;

    • (f) a summary of the plan to carry out the construction of the carbon capture and storage system, including a schedule for the completion of its major steps;

    • (g) an identification of potential persons with whom agreements can be entered into to carry out the construction of the carbon capture and storage system;

    • (h) the name and business address of the persons responsible for the development of the front end engineering design study and a description of their contribution to its development;

    • (i) a description of the capture technology selected in the front end engineering design study for the capture element of the carbon capture and storage system and of the capture element’s integration with the unit;

    • (j) an identification of any major equipment required to be purchased for the construction of the capture element of the carbon capture and storage system;

    • (k) an estimate of the performance of the unit when it is operating with an integrated carbon capture and storage system, supported by process flow diagrams and mass and energy balances, including an estimate of

      • (i) the rate of capture of CO2 emissions and the volume of CO2 emissions, expressed in standard m3, to be captured for a calendar year and for the operating life of the unit,

      • (ii) the production capacity of the unit,

      • (iii) the unit’s gross quantity of electricity produced for a calendar year — as set out in the description of Ggross in subsection 19(1) of these Regulations — when it is operating with an integrated capture element,

      • (iv) a summary of auxiliary energy loads,

      • (v) the period during a calendar year during which a unit is expected to be available for producing electricity, and

      • (vi) for a calendar year, the quantity of CO2 emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels in the unit and the quantity of emissions of nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, particulate matter, mercury and, if applicable, ammonia from the unit; and

    • (l) a summary of the resource analysis for the unit when it is operating with an integrated capture element of the carbon capture and storage system, including water consumption, heat and power consumption, raw material consumption and fuel consumption.

  • 2 If any major equipment that is necessary for the capture element referred to in paragraph 10(b) of these Regulations has been purchased, a copy of the purchase orders and receipts respecting the purchase of that equipment.

  • 3 A declaration, signed by all contracting parties to any contract referred to in paragraph 10(c) of these Regulations, that indicates that the contract has been entered into and the date on which it was entered into.

  • 4 A copy of any permit or approval referred to in paragraph 10(d) that has been obtained.

  • 5 A declaration — signed by the responsible person and, if applicable, any party contracting with the responsible person for the capture, transportation or storage elements of the carbon capture and storage system — that indicates the date on which CO2 emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels in the unit have been captured in accordance with the laws of Canada or a province that regulate that capture and have been transported and stored in accordance with the laws of Canada or a province, or of the United States or one of its states, that regulate that transportation or storage, as the case may be.
