This Cost Analysis evaluates the costs and potential benefits of the new Federal Requirements under the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program for Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Geologic Sequestration (GS) Wells (the GS Rule). Executive Order (EO) 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review (58 FR 51735) requires the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to estimate the economic impact of rules that have an annual effect on the economy of over $100 million and make that analysis available to the public in conjunction with publication of the final rule. EPA has chosen to publish a comprehensive cost analysis and a relative risk analysis to accompany the GS rule even though the Agency has determined that the annual cost is below the $100 million threshold. These analyses consider both the relative costs of the regulatory alternatives and the reduction in risk relative to baseline provided by each alternative in selecting the final rule.
