This initiative is a coordinated effort, involving multiple federal agencies, with the goal of effectively aligning, leveraging, and targeting a range of federal economic and workforce development programs and resources to assist communities negatively impacted by changes in the coal industry and power sector. In 1990, worldwide, more than 1,000 horizontal wells were drilled. Peabody exports Powder River Basin coal through existing ports to Europe, Chile and Asia. Nuclear power plants use Uranium as a fuel to extract energy from it.

For example, in the Austin Chalk reservoir of Texas’ Giddings Field, under equal pressure conditions, horizontal completions of 500 to 2,200 foot HD produce at initial rates 2½ to 7 times higher than vertical completions.7 Chairman Robert Hauptfuhrer of Oryx Energy Co. noted that “Our costs in the [Austin] chalk now are 50 percent more than a vertical well, but we have three to five or more times the daily production and reserves than a vertical well.”8 A faster producing rate translates financially to a higher rate of return on the horizontal project than would be achieved by a vertical project 'What the Heck Are You Up To, Mr. President?': Jimmy Carter, America's 'Malaise,' and the Speech That Should Have Changed the Country.

As an energy source, oil causes several kinds of air pollution, in addition to polluting land and water when it leaks or spills. Massive spills, like the 2010 Deep Water Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico, have disastrous consequences for the environment, human health and the local economies that depend on fisheries and tourism.

Oil comes from crude oil, which is a mix of hydrocarbons with some oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur impurities. S. gallons) can provide about 6 million Btu. Crude oil reserves are found all over the world, but the Middle East alone has about 63 percent of the known reserves. Of the oil consumed in the United States, most is used in transportation, and much of the rest goes to industrial, commercial, and residential uses Energy Security and Natural Gas Markets in Europe: Lessons from the EU and the United States (Routledge Studies in Energy Policy).

Conventional gas drilling requires a company to drill all the way down to where the gas is located, while “fracking” allows companies to access more gas for less cost as the drill doesn’t need to go all the way to all the individual locations of the gas Shale Gas and the Future of Energy: Law and Policy for Sustainability (New Horizons in Environmental and Energy Law series).

This SER section provides the NRC staff’s evaluation of the concentration of radionuclides in groundwater extracted by pumping and used in the annual water demand. Radionuclides transported through the saturated zone via groundwater to the accessible environment may be available for extraction by a pumping well.
