In response to the June 27, 2016, Federal Register notice, the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) provides comments on PHMSA’s approach for establishing minimum pipeline safety standards for the transportation of carbon dioxide (CO2) in a gaseous state. IPAA represents the thousands of independent oil and natural gas explorers and producers. Independent producers develop about 95 percent of American oil and gas wells, produce 54 percent of American oil, and produce 85 percent of American natural gas.
