Lower Cook Inlet: Another Example of More Data Needed for Appraising Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Resources
EMD-78-48: Published: Jun 8, 1978. Publicly Released: Jun 8, 1978.
The nation greatly relies on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) leasing program for meeting near-term domestic energy needs, particularly while new energy technologies and conservation actions are being developed. Decisions regarding where to lease and at what rate have a significant impact on the future production of OCS resources. The Department of the Interior's October 1977 sale of 135 oil and...
GAO Energy Digest
104263: Sep 1, 1977
The Energy Digest, the first in a series of planned topical digests, brings together all of the available unrestricted documents on energy-related matters that GAO has issued from July 1972 through March 1977. For the most part, this publication was derived from computerized GAO data bases.Designed to serve as a desk reference, the Energy Digest contains over 200 audit reports, special studies, le...
Outer Continental Shelf Sale 40: Inadequate Data Used to Select and Evaluate Lands to Lease
EMD-77-51: Published: Jun 28, 1977. Publicly Released: Jun 28, 1977.
The Department of Interior's policy of leasing Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) lands that have not been properly evaluated because of insufficient data has led to problems.A review of Sale 40 indicated that the Department had insufficient data with which to value the tracts. There was only one deep stratigraphic test off-structure for Sale 40. The reliability rating showed that only one of the three...
Cost and Employment Impacts of Various Energy Technologies
EMD-77-42: Published: May 23, 1977. Publicly Released: May 23, 1977.
Cost and employment impacts involved in the fuel cycles of various energy technologies could not be compared on a consistent basis needed for valid comparisons.The following steps appear to be necessary as a starting point to initiate the dialogue in developing a basis for analyzing the cost and employment impacts of energy technologies on a consistent basis: (1) the energy technologies should be...

Energy Production and Supply
100194: Apr 1, 1977
The decision to use Federal incentives to assist in the commercialization of energy technologies should be preceded by a careful analysis of the technology's state of development, the technology's economic feasibility, and the target group whose actions will be influenced. Senate Bill 419 meets some of these requirements in that it would enable affirmative congressional response through the normal...

Management and Funding Aspects of Three Nonnuclear Energy Research, Development, and Demonstration Subprograms
EMD-77-24: Published: Feb 25, 1977. Publicly Released: Feb 25, 1977.
Management and funding aspects of three nonnuclear energy research, development, and demonstration subprograms under the Energy Research and Development Administration were examined. The three subprograms were: photovoltaic energy of the solar energy program; direct combustion of the coal program; and hydrothermal technology application of the geothermal energy development program.The extent to wh...
On Conservation and Innovation
100196: Nov 30, 1976
Government use of public policy to stimulate both conservation and innovation in the use of energy is explored. If we squander our resources, those in the future will pay for our excesses. Innovation in the search for energy can be consonant with conservation. Conservation will not work voluntarily, but will have to be imposed by government. Direct action is seen in rationing, import quotas, auto...
