Rules for CO2 Injection

Rules for Carbon Dioxide injection – Some states have enacted legislation to specify regulatory requirements applicable to carbon dioxide (CO2) injection for carbon dioxide-enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR) and geologic storage. In some states, different regulatory regimes apply to CO2 injection when it is for CO2-EOR and when it is for geologic storage. In other states, the same regulations apply to CO2 injection regardless of whether it is for CO2-EOR or geologic storage.
