But meeting the energy policy challenge does not happen by accident. Although most people agree that energy policy matters, the political process of compromise and negotiation unfortunately does not always produce an optimal energy policy. There are numerous examples of countries – like Nigeria – that are richly endowed with energy resources and yet fail to take maximum advantage of these resources for the benefit of their economies Resilience of an African Giant: Boosting Growth and Development in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Directions in Development). Rather, a portion of the funds are expended on environmental restoration and waste management associated with the byproducts of energy-related research facilities, e.g., nuclear waste disposal.” (Note that such subsidies are for government facilities; the owners of commercial nuclear power plants must pay for nuclear waste disposal.

Starting in 2009, the development of unconventional oil resources has reversed a long decline in US oil production. In fact, the United States led the world in growth in liquids production from 2008 to 2010, owing in large part to the development of unconventional oil Challenged by Carbon: The Oil Industry and Climate Change.

While the deal is preliminary and doesn’t include Iran, it’s the first significant cooperation between OPEC and non-OPEC producers in 15 years and Saudi Arabia said it’s open to further action. … The deal to fix production at January levels, which includes Qatar and Venezuela, is the “beginning of a process” that could require “other steps to stabilize and improve the market,” Saudi Oil Minister Ali Al-Naimi said in Doha Tuesday after the talks with Russian Energy Minster Alexander Novak Successes and Failures in Regulating and Deregulating Utilities: Evidence from the UK, Europe and the USA. S. dry production increased from 2006 through 2012, when it reached its highest recorded annual total. The increases in production were the result of more efficient, cost-effective drilling techniques, notably in the production of natural gas from shale formations. Increased natural gas supply tends to dampen prices. In turn, lower prices can erode incentive for drilling, which eventually results in decreased production. … Hurricanes and other severe weather can affect the supply of natural gas read Agriculture, Environment and Development: International Perspectives on Water, Land and Politics online.
