Statement Regarding Louisiana’s CCS Primacy Application
STATEMENT REGARDING LOUISIANA’S CCS PRIMACY APPLICATION
NEW ORLEANS – (April 28, 2023) – Following is a statement from Marc Ehrhardt, executive director of the Grow Louisiana Coalition, regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s move to seek public comment about Louisiana’s application to have primacy to regulate “Class VI” wells for carbon capture sequestration in Louisiana:
“Whether it’s exploring the depths of the Gulf of Mexico or finding new ways to provide the world with energy, Louisianians are at the forefront of innovation. It’s been this way for a century.
“Louisiana will lead again as the next generation of energy technology emerges here. With carbon capture and storage, we can safely reduce emissions, increase energy production, create jobs and generate more tax revenue for Louisiana.”
