DOE reports on environmental benefits of advances in E & P technology

Nov 09, 1999 01:00 AM

The U.S. DOE recently issued a report on the environmental benefits of advances in oil and gas exploration and production technology. The report was prepared by a team comprised of DOE's Office of Natural Gas and Petroleum Technology, ICF Consulting, and Brandegee, Inc.
The report, "Environmental Benefits of Advanced Oil and Gas Technology," details the roles of oil and natural gas in our daily lives. It documents the evolution of technologies that discover, find, and produce oil and gas resources -- and describes how these same technologies have dramatically reduced the impacts of industry operations on the environment.
In preparing the report, ICF Consulting documented more than 30 innovations that have led to major improvements in the environmental performance of today's oil and gas industry, and identified the challenges that must be faced by the energy and environmental community if further advances are to be achieved. "We are proud to be a part of the DOE team that conceptualised, researched, and prepared this landmark study", said ICF Consulting Vice President Peter M. Crawford.
"DOE's report demonstrates how good things can happen as industry strives to discover and produce energy resources cost-effectively -- especially in deeper, more remote, and more challenging environments. We hope it will be widely distributed and used, not only by industry, but also by educators, policy makers, and other stakeholders who share responsibility for ensuring abundant, economical, and environmentally safe energy resources for our future."
