National Assessment of Geologic Carbon Dioxide Storage
Resources—Allocations of Assessed Areas to Federal Lands
http://pubs.usgs.gov/sir/2015/5021/
_______________________________

*Abstract*

Following the geologic basin-scale assessment of technically accessible
carbon dioxide storage resources in onshore areas and State waters of the
United States, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated that an area of about
130 million acres (or about 200,000 square miles) of Federal lands overlies
these storage resources. Consequently, about 18 percent of the assessed
area associated with storage resources is allocated to Federal land
management. Assessed areas are allocated to four other general
land-ownership categories as follows: State lands about 4.5 percent, Tribal
lands about 2.4 percent, private and other lands about 72 percent, and
offshore areas about 2.6 percent.
