On-Site Oil & Gas Research

Unconventional Resources

NETL’s onsite research in unconventional resources is focused on developing the data and modeling tools needed to predict and quantify potential risks associated with oil and gas resources in shale reservoirs that require hydraulic fracturing or other engineering measures to produce.

Offshore Resources

Building the scientific understanding and assessment tools necessary to develop confidence in the safe and environmentally sustainable development of domestic oil and gas resources, this effort addresses quantitative prediction of potential deleterious events in extreme offshore drilling and production.
