This page describes the requirements of an MRV Plan Extension Request under Subpart RR - Geologic Sequestration of Carbon Dioxide as well as instructions for submitting an MRV Plan Extension Request to the EPA using e-GGRT.

MRV Plan Extension Request Requirements

You must submit a proposed MRV plan to EPA according to the following schedule (according to the provisions at 40 CFR 98.448(b)):

  • If you have been issued a final UIC permit authorizing the injection of CO2 into the subsurface, you must submit a proposed MRV plan, MRV plan extension request, or R&D project exemption request within 180 days of receiving a final UIC permit. You will be allowed to request one extension of the submittal date of up to an additional 180 days.
  • If you are injecting a CO2 stream in subsurface geologic formations to enhance the recovery of oil or natural gas and you are not permitted as Class VI under the UIC Program, you may opt to submit an MRV plan at any time.
