Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program
Subpart UU – Injection of Carbon Dioxide
You will need Adobe Reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s PDF page to learn more.
2012 non-confidential data for subpart UU is now available on Envirofacts.
This rule requires reporting of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from facilities that inject carbon dioxide underground for the purposes of enhanced oil and gas recovery or any other purpose other than geologic sequestration. Facilities that report under subpart RR for a well or group of wells are not required to report under subpart UU for that well or group of wells.
