Drilling for energy resources

Description: Drilling is integral to the exploration, development, and production of most energy resources. Oil and natural gas, which are dependent on drilling technology, together account for about 77% of the energy sources consumed in the US. Thus, the limitations of current drilling technology also restrict the rate at which new energy supplies can be found, extracted, and brought to the marketplace. The purpose of the study reported was to examine current drilling technology, suggest areas where additional research and development (R and D) might significantly increase drilling rates and capabilities, and suggest a strategy for improving drilling technology. An overview is provided of the US drilling industry. The drilling equipment and techniques now used for finding and recovering oil, natural gas, coal, shale oil, nuclear fuels, and geothermal energy are described. Although by no means exhaustive, these descriptions provide the background necessary to adequately understand the problems inherent in attempts to increase instantaneous and overall drilling rates.

Impediments to geothermal development in Lake County, California

Description: The areas of environmental and socio-political concern are addressed as viewed by the actors in the geothermal process in Lake County, where the actors are the governmental jurisdictions involved in the permitting process, and the various groups concerned about the social, economic, and environmental conditions in Lake County. Those interviewed included all local and state governmental entities involved in the geothermal permitting process, representatives of industry and utilities, the Lake County Energy Council, and with Lake County citizens involved in the geothermal debate. The topics discussed relate directly to the impediments seen to geothermal development by those involved in the process. Environmental concerns center around land use, air quality, and flora and fauna impact, with land use being of major concern. The major socio-political problem is the overlapping or conflicting governmental jurisdictions, although the Environmental Impact Reporting Process, the prospect of industrialization, and social attitudes are also of concern.

Methodology and criteria for siting energy plants in Idaho

Description: This study contains a review of energy plant siting criteria, methodologies, guidelines and programs that are being considered today in this country. A preliminary screening approach for siting energy plants in Idaho is presented and a detailed hierarchical classification system for siting criteria has been developed. Methodology for using the criteria is suggested. Experience of a workshop trying to identify problems of implementing a ranking and rating for siting energy plants in the general situation for Idaho is reported. A brief analysis is presented on the needs for regulations and legislation to implement a future program of evaluation that would benefit utilities, the planning agencies, and the regulatory agencies operating within the state of Idaho.
