Carbon Sequestration Certification Program
About the Program
|Agricultural Offsets||Forestry Offsets||Geologic Sequestration|
The Oklahoma Carbon Sequestration Certification Program encourages Oklahomans to prevent soil erosion, protect water quality, and improve air quality by adopting conservation practices that sequester greenhouse gases. By developing a program that combines research, natural resource protection, and state-backed verification of carbon offsets, Oklahoma has a model program that strives to maximize the quality and credibility of offsets from agriculture, forestry, and geologic sequestration.
The voluntary program offers fee-based verification of carbon offsets to participating aggregators who hold carbon contracts with agriculture producers and forest landowners. Verification is also offered to oil and gas companies injecting CO2 underground in Oklahoma. Verification is a vital component to carbon credit trading that adds a layer of assurance that buyers of CO2 offsets are getting what they pay for and that purchased offsets are real.
Agriculture producers and forest landowners who want their offsets verified by the program should contact a state approved aggregator. Applicants for verification of geologic sequestration apply directly to the Conservation Commission. For questions, call 405-522-4739.
