The project goal was to collect and/or analyze data and prepare reports as needed to support DOE's Oil and Natural Gas Environmental Program.
DOE supports the development, analysis, and implementation of technology development, economic assessments, and information technology strategies related to oil and gas production, storage, and recovery by numerous State and Federal agencies, as well as oil and gas industry and association partners. DOE seeks performance improvements in the various projects that issue from NETL. Different system efforts are at differing levels of maturity.
The project provided support in planning activities and analysis of meetings and conferences as requested by DOE.
The project supported the DOE National Oil and Gas Environmental Program in the identification of mission, vision, long-term goals, and objective strategies and customer base in the following ways:
Deliverables varied, depending on the nature of the specific effort, as assigned by DOE. Deliverables, timelines, and performance measures of each assignment are agreed upon by the consultant and DOE. In meetings of stakeholders, the consultant provided a report detailing the needs and priorities identified by the stakeholders and a synopsis of high-priority issues, including background information and a recommended priority for each issue based on an analysis of the various stakeholders' input, potential impact to the industry, and stated program goals.
The tasks broke down as follows:
Data Collection & Analysis/Regulatory Analysis
Program Planning & Technical Support
Professional Communication-Federal Energy Resource Network (FERN)
The project was completed in 2005.
This project was funded under a MOBIS contract for small businesses.
