Lessons Learned by the DOE Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships in the Permitting and Licensing of Validation Phase (Phase II) Pilot Projects (2010)

Lessons Learned by the DOE Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships in the Permitting and Licensing of Validation Phase (Phase II) Pilot Projects, IOGCC CCGS Task Force, September 2010. This “Lessons Learned” report represents the efforts of the IOGCC Carbon Capture and Geological Storage (CCGS) Task Force review of the work of the seven Department of Energy‐sponsored Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships’ (RCSPs) pilot projects. In working with the RCSPs, the IOGCC Task Force on Carbon Capture and Geological Storage compiled challenges – along with recommendations to address the challenges ‐‐ reported by the RCSPs. This report highlights the legal and regulatory hurdles faced during the pilot projects and identifies key areas where improvements can be made. In addition to the recommendations of the RCSPs, the IOGCC CCGS Task Force created its own distinct set of recommendations that identify actions that should be taken in the future to make licensing and permitting of CCGS projects more streamlined and efficient, thus guiding government and business through the initial phases toward commercialization.
