U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan, the U.S. Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), Spectra Energy Transmission, and the Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) are collaborating on a large-scale CCS project near Spectra Energy's existing Fort Nelson natural gas plant in northeastern British Columbia, Canada.

The project is in its initial feasibility phase with initial injections are scheduled to begin in late 2011. It is part of EERC's Plains CO2 Reduction (PCOR) Partnership.

It aims to determine whether deep underground saline reservoirs are appropriate for CCS. Tests and analysis will evaluate geological, technical, and economic feasibility of using the technology to manage greenhouse gases.

This demonstration is one of two projects the PCOR Partnership will lead in its Phase III efforts (during 2007–2017).
