Seite 12 - On no one quality, on no one process, on no one country, on no one route and on no one field must we be dependent . . . Safety and certainty in oil lie in variety and variety alone.
Seite 32 - OTA is examining historic changes in US energy supply and demand and the ability of previous forecasts to anticipate these changes. Next, the study will describe current forecasts for the next 15 to 25 years and identify their underlying assumptions. The study will then identify and evaluate the primary sources of technical uncertainties in the forecasts. The sources of technical uncertainty include: economic growth rates and patterns; new energy supply, conservation, and end use technologies; geologic...

Seite 33 - ... sources of uncertainty, primarily political uncertainty.) Finally, the study will identify and evaluate policy options that would add flexibility to the energy system, ie, to increase the system's ability to adapt to the range of futures consistent with these uncertainties.
Seite 32 - Technological Risks and Opportunities for Future US Energy Supply and Demand In the first phase of the study, OTA evaluated the implications for US energy policy of volatile oil prices, emphasizing the effects of low prices on domestic oil production, eg, plugging of stripper wells and loss of production from tertiary and some secondary recovery operations in the shorter term, loss of production and reserves due to 250 lower drilling rates, reduced R&D expenditures, and so forth in the longer term.

The oil industry considers the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to be the United States...

Seite 18 - Longer term progress, beyond the year 2000, could be much larger if strong continual incentives for fuel economy are brought to bear on the industry. If Congress believes that even larger gains in fuel economy are necessary beyond that which can be achieved with strictly technical fixes, then it could mandate a basic shift in the size and performance of the fleet either through regulatory or economic means. Because today's auto purchasers feel free to choose among both the automobile fleet and the...
