  • Developments in Oil Shale

    DIANE Publishing. 2011. ISBN: 9781437939729,1437939724. 30 pages.

    This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Rising oil prices and concerns over declining petroleum production worldwide revived U.S. interest in oil shale after a two-decade hiatus. In addition to technological challenges left unsolved from previous development efforts, environmental issues remained and new issues have emerged. Challenges to development also include competition with conventional petroleum production in the mid-continent region, and increasing petroleum...

  • Department of Defense Facilities

    DIANE Publishing. 2011. ISBN: 9781437938357,1437938353. 24 pages.

    In the early 1970s, Congress began mandating reductions in energy consumed by fed. agencies; primarily by improving building efficiency, and reducing fossil fuel use. Early legislation mandated a 10% reduction in fed. building energy and a recent Exec. Order mandates a 30% further reduction by 2015. This report reviews energy conservation legislation and Exec. Orders that apply to the DoD. Contents: Background; Energy Efficiency Legislation; Defense Energy Policies; Defense Energy Consumption...

  • Unconventional Gas Shales

    DIANE Publishing. 2010. ISBN: 9781437925432,143792543X. 49 pages.

    In the past, the oil and gas industry considered gas locked in tight, impermeable shale uneconomical to produce. However, advances in directional well drilling and reservoir stimulation have dramatically increased gas production from unconventional shales. There may be as much as 200 trillion cubic feet of natural gas technically recoverable from these shales. There is an expectation that the demand for natural gas will increase. Developing these shales comes with some controversy. Contents...

  • Oil Shale

    DIANE Publishing. 2011. ISBN: 9781437938401,143793840X. 29 pages.

    Federal interest in oil shale dates back to the early 20th century, when the Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves were set aside. Commercial interest followed during the 1960s. After a second oil embargo in the 1970s, Congress created a synthetic fuels program to stimulate large-scale commercial development of oil shale. Commercially backed oil shale projects ended in the early 1980s when oil prices began declining. High oil prices have revived the interest in oil shale. Contents of this...

  • Radioactive Waste Streams

    DIANE Publishing. 2011. ISBN: 9781437938418,1437938418. 37 pages.

    Radioactive waste (RW) is a byproduct of nuclear weapons production, commercial nuclear power generation, and the naval reactor program. RW byproducts also result from radioisotopes used for scientific, med., and industrial purposes. Contents of this report: Measurement of Radioactivity and Hazards of Radiation; Comparative Range of Radioactivity; Spent Nuclear Fuel; High-Level RW; Waste Incidental to Reprocessing; Transuranic Waste; Surplus Weapons-Usable Plutonium; Low-Level RW: Provisions...
