米国石油協会(American Petroleum Institute:API)は、パイプライン公衆関与のための新しい推奨指針(recommended practice:RP)であるRP 1185発表しました。指針は、天然ガス及び石油産業の代表者と共に、米国の連邦、州及び地方政府、部族政府、公益団体、並びに地域社会のリーダー達と連携して作成されました。RP 1185は、関与プロセスへの有意義な参加を成し遂げ、関係を発展させ、市民との信頼を築くことを目標に、CO2パイプライン・オペレーターが、立地及び設計から操業及び撤去まで、パイプライン・プロジェクトの全期間を通して実施する公衆関与プログラムの枠組を提示しています。


地域社会の関与は、米国エネルギー省(U.S. Department of Energy:DOE)を通じた連邦資金援助の要件です。Justice40イニシアティブの下、DOEの資金援助を求める申請者は、中核的な原則の1つとして地域社会の関与を含む、地域社会利益計画(Community Benefits Plan)を作成しなければなりません。

Industry Association Releases New Guidance for Pipeline Public Engagement

The American Petroleum Institute (API) has released a new recommended practice (RP) for pipeline public engagement, RP 1185. The guidance was developed in coordination with federal, state, and local governments, tribal governments, public interest groups, and community leaders alongside representatives from the natural gas and oil industry. RP 1185 provides a public engagement program framework for carbon dioxide (CO2) pipeline operators to implement throughout the pipeline project life cycle, from siting and design to operation and decommissioning, with the goal of achieving meaningful involvement in the engagement process, developing relationships, and building trust with the public.


Community engagement is a requirement for federal funding through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Under the Justice40 Initiative, applicants for DOE funding must develop a Community Benefits Plan which includes engaging communities as one of its core principles.


CO2 pipelines link carbon capture facilities to permanent storage sites and are critical infrastructure to achieving net zero emissions in the U.S. Although more than 5,000 miles of CO2 pipelines exist in the United States, studies suggest the CO2 pipeline network in the U.S. must grow to a size ranging from 20,000 to 96,000 miles to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Recent focus on CO2 pipeline development in the U.S. has prompted state legislators and federal authorities to increase safety rules and standards for CO2 pipelines.
