Oil and gas: licensing for carbon storage
This guidance was withdrawn on
The Oil & Gas Authority launched a new website on 3 October 2016 to reflect its new status as a government company.
This formalises the transfer of the Secretary of State’s regulatory powers in respect of oil and gas to the OGA, and grants it new powers. This website will no longer be updated. Visitors should refer to www.ogauthority.co.uk
The Energy Act 2008 provides for a licensing regime that governs the offshore storage of carbon dioxide.
