TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER TO U.S. INDEPENDENT OIL AND NATURAL GAS PRODUCERS

Description: In pursuing its mission of helping U.S. independent oil and gas producers make timely, informed technology decisions, the Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (PTTC) functions as a cohesive national organization that implements industry's directives through active regional programs. The role of the national headquarters (HQ) organization includes planning and managing the PTTC program, conducting nation-wide technology transfer activities, and implementing a comprehensive communications effort. PTTC relies on 10 Regional Lead Organizations (RLOs) as its main program delivery mechanism to industry. Through its regions, PTTC connects with independent oil and gas producers--through technology workshops, resources centers, websites, newsletters, and other outreach efforts. The organization effectively combines federal, state, and industry funding to achieve important goals for all of these sectors. This integrated funding base, combined with industry volunteers guiding PTTC's activities and the dedication of national and regional staff, are achieving notable results. PTTC is increasingly recognized as a critical resource for information and access to technologies, especially for smaller companies. This technical progress report summarizes PTTC's accomplishments during FY98, and its strategy for achieving further growth in the future.

Equal employment opportunity plan development guidance

Description: The purpose of this publication is to provide instructions for the development of EEO Plans for Fiscal Year 1979. It supplements the National EEO Plan for the Department of Energy issued in August 1978 (DOE/S-0002). The material included should be used immediately as guidance to develop, document, and implement subordinate echelon commitments to EEO. A schedule for the development and submission of EEO Plans is included. Most of the continuing requirements will be published at a later date as part of the directives system. Any comments or helpful suggestions concerned with the program outlined would be appreciated by the Office of Equal Opportunity.

Testing and Application in Mission Critical Settings and Transmission, Siting, and Metrics Models Research

Description: The Distributed Generation: Testing and Application in Mission Critical Settings and Transmission, Siting, and Metrics Models Research grant has been in place for several years and has accomplished all the objectives and deliverables that were originally set forth in the proposal. The National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), the City of Portland, OR, Bureau of Environmental Services and the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) have been able to successfully monitor and evaluate DG applications in a wastewater treatment plant environment, develop a metrics model for new voluntary DG guidelines that could be used as a prototype, and through outreach and education venues provide the results of these projects to state, professional, and national organizations and their members addressing similar issues. This project had three specific tasks associated with it: (1) Field Research and Testing; (2) Metrics/Verification Model for DG Guidelines; and (3) Northeastern Transmission/Siting Data Research. Each task had its own set of challenges and lessons learned but overall there were many successes that will serve as learning opportunities in these technology areas. Continuing to share the outcomes of this project with a wider audience will be beneficial for all those involved in distributed generation and combined heat and power projects.

TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER TO U.S. INDEPENDENT OIL AND NATURAL GAS PRODUCERS

Description: The Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (PTTC) continued pursuing its mission of helping U.S. independent oil and gas producers make timely, informed technology decisions during Fiscal Year 2000 (FY00). Functioning as a cohesive national organization, PTTC has active grassroots programs through its ten Regional Lead Organizations (RLOs) who bring research and academia to the table via their association with geological surveys and engineering departments. The regional directors connect with independent oil and gas producers through technology workshops, resource centers, websites, newsletters, various technical publications and other outreach efforts. These are guided by regional Producer Advisory Groups (PAGs), who are area operators and service companies working with the Regional Lead Organizations. The role of the national headquarters (HQ) staff includes planning and managing the PTTC program, conducting nation-wide technology transfer activities, and implementing a comprehensive communications effort. The organization effectively combines federal, state, and industry funding to achieve important goals for all of these sectors. This integrated funding base, combined with industry volunteers guiding PTTC's activities and the dedication of national and regional staff, are achieving notable results. PTTC is increasingly recognized as a critical resource for information and access to technologies, especially for smaller companies. This technical progress report summarizes PTTC's accomplishments during FY00, which lays the groundwork for further growth in the future. At a time of many industry changes and market movements, the organization has built a reputation and expectation to address industry needs of getting information distributed quickly which can impact the bottom line immediately.

The Ignition Physics Study Group

Description: In the US magnetic fusion program there have been relatively few standing committees of experts, with the mandate to review a particular sub-area on a continuing basis. Generally, ad hoc committees of experts have been assembled to advise on a particular issue. There has been a lack of broad, systematic and continuing review and analysis, combining the wisdom of experts in the field, in support of decision making. The Ignition Physics Study Group (IPSG) provides one forum for the systematic discussion of fusion science, complementing the other exchanges of information, and providing a most important continuity in this critical area. In a similar manner to the European program, this continuity of discussion and the focus provided by a national effort, Compact Ignition Tokamak (CIT), and international effort, Engineering Test Reactor (ETR), are helping to lower those barriers which previously were an impediment to rational debate.

Federal laboratories: technology resources and transfer champions

Description: The Federal laboratories in the US employ a significant fraction of the nation's research and development resources, including technical staff, facilities and operating budgets. With a maturing base of national policy that encourages technical interchange with industry, universities and state and local governments, and with a breadth of technical areas under study, these laboratories represent a major national contingent asset - valuable yet not fully utilized. The laboratories have developed many methods of interaction with other organizations, providing a variety of ways to match needs and opportunities and to exploit any confluence of interests. The Federal Laboratory Consortium assists these laboratories in their transfer operations and helps to develop linkage opportunities. Many barriers to successful transfer are defined and surmountable.
