Provide substantial support for early movers in carbon capture and storage Bonus allowance for early movers could be as high as $100/ton Recognizes the use of geologic sequestration (Section 813) Primary sequestration mediums are saline formations , depleted oil and gas fields and deep coal seams (June 5th Committee Report) EPA sets up Task force to study legal framework within six months of enactment
and due within 18 months to Congress of enactment could be interpreted as also including BAU Class II EOR wells. EPA tasked with establishing itself (1 yr report to Congress), the geologic sequestration regulations (2 yrs), Safe Drinking Water regulations (3 yrs) and requirements for geologic sequestration both subsurface and atmospheric reporting (4 yrs) Using Enhanced hydrocarbon recovery results in reduced bonus allowance values at the EPA Administrators discretion 17% reduction of 2005 CO2 levels by 2020 4 Interesting Finding on Oil In WM but not in Boxer-Kerry
SEC. 127. OPEN FUEL STANDARD. 17 (a) FINDINGS. The Congress finds that(1) the status of oil as a strategic commodity, which derives from its domination of the transportation sector, presents a clear and present danger to the United States; Final version language on page 120. Language found on page 117 of June 19th HR 2454 this language also found on page 115 of the Amendment in the Nature of a Substitute 946 page version of HR 2454 not in the May 21, 932 page version but also on page 33 in the Committee report June 5th. Note: Clear and present danger was used by Ronald Reagan in Policy Memorandum No.3 Foreign Policy and National Security to convey his feelings about the threat from Russia and its nuclear weapons. Fall of 1979 while running for President. Effectively set the stage for the Star Wars initiative
5 Senates American Clean Energy Leadership Act of 2009 S. 1462 Accelerate the introduction of new clean energy technologies in the United States, creating new jobs and helping businesses grow through clean energy project financing, a renewable electricity standard, and a robust and secure national electricity transmission highway Increase energy efficiency in buildings, major equipment, and appliances, saving consumers and businesses billions of dollars on their energy bills Enhance Americas energy independence by increasing clean energy supplies and energy security, including new access to over 20 trillion cubic feet of clean natural gas resources
Strengthen America as the world leader in energy innovation, by doubling our national investment in energy research and technology Build a new energy workforce for the future Protect consumers by making energy markets more transparent and fair, and by providing new tools to fight market manipulation; Tackle future energy and climate challenges with smarter, more integrated planning. 20% reduction of 2005 CO2 levels by 2020 Promoting the development of domestic sources of oil and natural gas Demonstrating the large-scale geologic storage of industrial sources of carbon dioxide; 6 Senator Cantwells CLEAR Cap and Refund Act
Unlike the Waxman Markey bill, this legislation envisions: 100% auction of "carbon shares"; reduced trading with trading limited to energy producers; a price collar $7-12 with escalator; no offsets; emission cap limited to only CO2 (not other GHGs); and program run by DOE. A "carbon share" is the right to sell or otherwise place into commerce in the United States 1 ton of fossil carbon. Thus, unlike the "allowance" approach of Waxman Markey, which focuses on industrial emissions, the Cantwell bill addresses carbon when it is introduced upstream in fossil fuels (and fossil fuel products) in commerce at the wellhead, mine mouth, or point of entry. For CCS purposes, the bill grants operators of CCS facilities surplus "carbon shares" in a quantity that corresponds to the quantity of fossil carbon permanently sequestered. (A similar incentive is provided for the beneficial reuse of CO2.) The "carbon shares" could be used by the facility or sold in the market. Background materials accompanying the draft legislation describe these bonus "carbon shares" as a "strong, positive incentive for fossil fuel power plants to reduce their net carbon dioxide emissions through permanent sequestration ....
75% of auction revenues go back to public The bill does not define "sequestration" and is silent on issues such as permitting and long-term stewardship. 7 Senators Kerry, Lieberman & Graham Compromise Bill Cap and Trade Expanded offshore leasing for oil and gas production More carbon capture & storage and clean coal support More loans and incentives for nuclear power

Mandatory GHG Reporting- Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2008-0508 FY2008 Consolidated Appropriations Act (H.R. 2764; Public Law 110161), EPA has proposed a rule that requires mandatory reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from large sources(>25,000tns) in the United States. Public comment period ended June 9, 2009 In effect Jan 1, 2010, first reporting due 2011
Industry data collection under the draft rule would begin in January 2010, with the first reports due to EPA in March 2011. http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/emissions/ghgrulemaking.html Endangerment Finding-issued under Section 202(a)(1) of the Clean Air Act, OMB approved Dec. 7 Given that similar endangerment findings serve as the bases for other programs under the Clean Air Act, it is anticipated that, unless Congress acts, EPA will also begin to regulate GHGs from stationary sources and set ambient air quality. The endangerment determination may include an assessment of current and future risks rather than being limited to proof of actual harm.
EPA cannot control how a federal court would rule in the event of a citizens suit to force regulation of all sources that emit GHGs in excess of the statutory thresholds. On May 12, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson told the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works committee: "It is true that if the endangerment finding is finalized, EPA would have the authority to regulate green-house-gas emissions and...we would be judicious, we would be deliberative, we would follow the science, we would follow the law." 10 EPA Endangerment finding gives the EPA authority to
regulate greenhouse gasses/CO2 under the Clean Air Act Fuel switching may be triggered pushing coal gasification (IGCC) over to natural gas for gas turbine generation EPA pushes Kentucky regulators in determining permit applications from the Cash Creek IGCC plant in Kentucky to consider if natural gas would not be BACT or best available control technology for generating electricity at this project Two Markets for Same Molecule Commodity CO2 for use in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in the US where available (~89 bln bbls) Alternative commodity uses developing

Globally, these environmental markets have already grown on average 329 percent per year since 2002, Chilton said. With the passage of legislation, such as H.R. 2454 introduced by Representatives Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Edward Markey (DMA), Chilton estimates "Green CAT Markets could become $2 trillion endeavors in five years.

Issues of Confidence in Carbon Markets The recent announcements of carousel fraud in the European Unions $90 billion emissions trading scheme has prompted the European Commission to propose a temporary solution later this month to stop tax fraud in the European carbon emissions market, reports Reuters. However, experts are warning that a patchwork of unilateral actions by member states like the UK and France to prevent carousel fraud in spot trading of EU carbon permits could push the suspected activity into neighboring states, according to Reuters.
