Selected Energy-Related Projects

bulletRocky Mountain States Boom and Bust Energy Development Patterns, 1970-2000. Summary of Conclusions and Excerpts from Final Draft .

This 75 page report exhaustively examines oil, gas, and coal development patterns at 3 different levels: regional/state, county, and two case studies.

 Results of the study indicate that energy-dependent regions have significantly greater boom and bust characteristics than non energy-dependent communities. Greater impacts include (1) population variability, (2) income growth and stability, (3) unemployment variation, and (4) economic diversification. 

bulletPowder River Basin Coalbed Methane Financial Model (PRB-CBM-FM): Revision of presentation given to University of Colorado, Natural Resources Law Center Coalbed Methane Conference, April 4-5, 2002.

Examines the impact on financial viability of Powder River Basin coalbed methane operators of six different  water disposal options.

bulletA Brief Examination of the Adequacy of Future U.S. Natural Gas Infrastructure and Resources and the Role of Public Lands in U.S. Natural Gas Production, prepared for The Wilderness Society.

Critiques George W. Bush energy initiatives and examines the adequacy of the U.S. natural gas resource base.

bulletOil Resources in the 1002 Area of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, invited oral and written testimony before the United States Senate, Senate Energy Committee, April 5, 2000.

U.S. Senate testimony that explains the national significance of different oil resource estimates underlying the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), Alaska.

bulletComments on the Merits of EPA’s Economic Analysis of Proposed NPDES Rules on the Discharge of Oilfield Platform Wastes, prepared for The Trustees for Alaska.

Examines some public and private sector financial consequences of reforming offshore oil platform waste disposal practices.

bulletFinancial Analysis of a Natural Gas Pipeline System in West Virginia and Virginia, Proposed by Thornwood Gas, Incorporated, prepared for the Virginia and West Virginia Sierra Clubs and the Virginia Wilderness Committee.

Finds that a proposed natural gas pipeline through proposed wilderness areas in Virginia and West Virginia did not have a sound financial basis.

bulletInvestigation of Trends in Oil and Gas Exploration, prepared for the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Range and Experimental Station.

Researches recent developments in U.S. petroleum and natural gas exploration.

bulletReview of Alaska Oil Reserves/Resources by the General Accounting Office, Comments for the Natural Resources Defense Council, Alaska Coalition, National Wildlife Federation, Wilderness Society, Sierra Club, and National Audubon Society.

bulletA Simulation Model to Determine the Probability of Finding Economically Producible Petroleum in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), Alaska, published in Competition, Profitability, and Policy in the Energy Industries, International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE) conference.

An advanced economic model that estimates the likelihood of finding economic amounts of oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), Alaska. At one time this paper was used as a case study for natural resource valuation at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

bulletPreliminary Report Reviewing the Potential Energy and Mineral Production for Selected Areas Reported in the Utah BLM Statewide Wilderness Draft Environmental Impact Statement, prepared for The Wilderness Society.

Looks at many different Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs) to determine the reasonable likelihood that they may contain economic quantities of energy or mineral resources.
