Sabin Center report on legal issues in oceanic transport of CO2

A new report published by the Sabin Center at Columbia Law School examines the laws governing international transport of carbon dioxide for sequestration.

It focusses specifically on the shipping of carbon dioxide that was captured in Europe to the United States for sequestration there. Much of the report would also be relevant to the shipping of carbon dioxide between other regions, though domestic laws at either end of the trip may also be relevant.

The issue of cross-border shipping of carbon dioxide for sequestration is of academic and practical interest. As previously reported on the Sabin Center blog, there were important developments in Europe last year, with the unprecedented shipping of carbon dioxide from Belgium for sequestration under the Danish North Sea; and, more recently, with the bilateral agreement signed between France and Denmark enabling carbon dioxide sequestration in the latter as well as last week’s bilateral agreements signed between Norway, France, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden enabling sequestration in Norway. Momentum is also increasing in the United States, with a number of large carbon sequestration facilities being developed around the country. Several of those facilities will be located in Texas and Louisiana on or near the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, making them easily accessible to ships carrying carbon dioxide from overseas.
