New Jersey

Status

New Jersey has not promulgated regulations specifically governing geological CO2 sequestration. Existing state regulations regarding well drilling, air permitting, land use permitting, and pipeline-related issues would apply to any proposed CCS project. New Jersey recently joined the Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership, and is currently conducting an assessment of geological carbon sequestration potential in New Jersey and the adjacent offshore region. The State has not taken a policy position in support of or in opposition to CCS; the statewide assessment is a scientific study for research purposes.
