Canadian Natural, on behalf of the Pathways Alliance, will be seeking regulatory approval for the Pathways CO₂ Transportation Network and Storage Hub Project (the Project).

We are committed to meaningfully communicating Project-related regulatory information to ensure Indigenous groups, landowners and other interested parties remain informed and are able to participate in the regulatory process.

The proposed Project is expected to achieve net reductions from oil sands operations of approximately 10-12 million tonnes (Mt) of carbon dioxide equivalents per year (CO₂e/year).

Where is the CCS network?

Our proposed CCS network uses an approximately 400-kilometre-long CO₂ transportation line between the Fort McMurray and Cold Lake regions. Additional pipelines will connect oil sands facilities to the main line to form a network.
