Completed Research Reports Pre-EPAct 2005 Section 999

 

Prior to the implementation of the current RPSEA program supported by provisions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct), RPSEA managed a program of research supported by funding from the Gas Research Institute (GRI). Under that program, RPSEA awarded funding to 22 research projects that focused on increasing energy supply from domestic ultra-deepwater and unconventional resources. Abstracts and summaries for the completed projects are listed below.
