Preliminary work has begun on a billion-dollar carbon dioxide pipeline and enhanced oil recovery project in central Alberta.

Construction should begin late 2013 on the pipeline, which will run from refineries in Redwater to Clive, according to Enhance Energy.

Carbon dioxide will be used to extract more light oil from reservoirs.

It’s hoped the pipeline will be complete in early 2015.

Enhance Energy will split the cost with the Alberta and federal governments.

The project is expected to divert carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
