“The role of government is not to create wealth; the role of our government is to create an environment in which the entrepreneur can flourish, in which minds can expand, in which technologies can reach new frontiers.” — President George W. Bush
RPSEA has established and coordinated a public benefit research program to identify and develop new methods and integrating systems for exploring, producing, and transporting-to-market energy, or other derivative products from natural gas, in Ultra-deepwater and Unconventional Onshore Hydrocarbon Resources. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 establishes a natural gas supply research and development program associated with these Resources to be funded over the next ten years. As the consortium chosen to manage these funds, RPSEA will sharply focus its experience, expertise and capabilities on meeting the program’s objectives: to maximize the value of domestic natural gas and oil resources through new technologies to increase production, and to do so in less expensive, safer and more efficient and environmentally benign ways.
