Discovery, development and deployment of effective and safe technologies for the recovery of underground energy sources like oil, gas, and the emerging possibilities for gas hydrates in the deepwater of the Gulf of Mexico are at the heart of NETL’s mission to conduct research for a prosperous American energy future. It’s a mission that has already produced successes, but is poised to create even more opportunities.
Work on these unconventional energy sources and the technologies that will bring them to bear on our nation’s energy security includes some of our most promising research. Here are a few examples.
Unconventional energy research is among many successes in NETL’s innovation portfolio dedicated to discovering, developing, and integrating modern technologies that help enhance our nation’s energy dominance. It is a portfolio we are very proud to pursue and excited to build upon.
