Protecting a Pipeline
A 30-inch oil pipeline, presently under construction through mountainous terrain in central Colombia, transports petroleum from the Cusiana oil field to the coast. The discovery of the...

The Value of the Federal Oil/Gas OCS and Its Required Nexus with the Changing Perceived Quality of Rights
A particular few of thousands of hardly distinguishable and certainly previously undistinguished Federal OCS oil/gas tracts can suddenly become prizes of great value. Vice versa, prized...

Environmental Compliance and Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration and Production
The economic impacts of multiple environmental regulations of offshore oil and gas exploration and production are examined using an integrated, investment-production-regulatory model developed...

The Whole Picture: Federal Statutory and Regulatory Authorities Which Govern Oil and Gas Activities on the Alaskan Outer Continental Shelf
Oil and gas activities conducted on the Alaska Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) are subject to multiple Federal laws which result in safe operations and environmental protection. Lessees...

Environmental Compliance Monitoring Program for Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration and Development and Production Activities in the Pacific OCS Region
The Pacific Outer Continental Shelf Region of Minerals Management Service has recently development and is implementing an Environmental Compliance Monitoring Program. Each of the 24 oil...

The Permitting Process for Oil Exploration and Development Projects on the North Slope of Alaska—An Oil Company Perspective
The five oil fields of Alaska's North Slope, including the giant Prudhoe Bay field the largest oil field in North America, contribute approximately 25% of United State domestic oil production...

Resource Extraction Activities in the Coastal Zone—The Impact of Offshore Oil Production on Coastal Communities
There are few studies that examine the impact of offshore oil extraction on social problems, educational attainment and economic health of communities. The results of this study demonstrate...

Ocean Management Under the Marine Protection, Research and Sanctuaries Act: Sanctuaries, Dumping and Development
This paper examines the terms of the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act of 1972 (MPRSA), 3 its legislative history, and its implementation by NOAA and EPA, and concludes...

Cleaning Up in the Former Soviet Union
As they negotiate with authorities in Russia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and other former Soviet Republics, Western companies—including many of the big oil and natural-resources firms—are...

Improvement of Fuel Oil Contaminated Soils by Additives

Steady State Composition with Low Fe²+ Concentrations for Efficient O2 Production by Magma Electrolysis of Lunar Soils
Parameters are estimated for a hypothetical, well stirred, continuous-feed electrolytic cell that converts 20% of a lunar soil feedstock to O2 gas,...

TLP Fatigue Due to Second-Order Springing
For offhsore oil production in water depths beyond 300-350 m, the tension leg platform (TLP) has become an increasingly popular design concept. The TLP is a floating structure with excess...

Hydrogeotechnical Considerations for the Disposal of Oil Shale Solid Waste Material
Laboratory tests and five large scale lysimeters (7.3×3.0×3.0 m deep) have been constructed to collect information and data on hydrogeotechnical factors which affect an oil shale solid...

Fingerprint Identification of Groundwater Petroleum Contamination Using Synchronous Scanning Fluorescence
