Mapping Class V and VI permits | All eyes on storage locations

byShili Yang

CCUS has gathered impressive momentum over the past two years as companies seek to exploit the technology’s economic and environmental benefits. In the U.S., the number of Class VI well permit applications for permanent geological CO2 storage surged by 40, or 800%, between May 2021 and May 2023, owing largely to enhancements to the 45Q tax credit. Despite the rise, the EPA and company websites provide limited transparency on proposed injection well locations.

The Enverus Intelligence ® | Research (EIR) team leveraged additional disclosure available through a variety of data sources to add geographic coordinates to the 45 active, pending and withdrawn Class VI applications (Figure 1). Thirty, or 67%, of project geographic coordinates are known while the remaining 15 are inferred using public disclosure. This information is critical to competitor intelligence, activity screening and infrastructure buildout workflows for project developers, service providers and investors active in the space.  For more information on this dataset as well as future CCUS project locations in Louisiana and trends among applications, check out EIR’s latest report on mapping Class V and VI permits.
