CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 4: legal and fiscal aspects

14th April 2015

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), Policy law and regulation

This report provides an analysis of the current and suggested legal framework that could regulate CCS activities in Sweden and the wider Baltic Sea region. The evolution of a well-functioning legal framework for regional CCS operations is expected to be time consuming, with the early identification of potential hurdles critical to all stakeholders.

David Langlet was commissioned by Elforsk to analyse legal and fiscal aspects of CCS in the Baltic Sea region. The study was carried out jointly with Nils Rydberg who brought expertise on the CCS value chain and its actors. This report is part of the project Bastor2 (Baltic Storage of CO2), with the overriding objective to assess the opportunities and conditions for CO2 sequestration in the Baltic Sea Area. The project, which ran from June 2012 through September 2014, was financed by the Swedish Energy Agency, the Global CCS Institute and a number of Swedish industrial and energy companies.
