7th CCS Regulatory Network Meeting

Venue: Paris

Dates: 22 April 2015 - 23 April 2015

Organiser: IEA

Contact Email: tristan.stanley@iea.org

Background

Over the past few years, some early CO2 storage projects have gone through the permitting process providing opportunities to test the regulatory frameworks in the various jurisdictions. Meanwhile, other governments have continued to explore and analyse how CCS permitting and regulation can best be fit within existing legal frameworks. This year’s meeting of the IEA CCS Regulatory Network will be an opportunity to review the experiences of projects and regulators in applying for and issuing permits; and an opportunity for more general knowledge sharing to support jurisdictions along the full spectrum of framework development.

This meeting will also explore the regulatory context of existing EOR projects; and the interaction of CCS regulation with broader emissions reduction schemes, both domestically and internationally.
