The National Assessment of United States Oil and Gas Resources: The Economic Component. Introduction. The National Assessment of United States Oil and Gas Resources prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) provides estimates of quantities of technically recoverable oil and natural gas that could be added to our already proved reserves in the onshore and State offshore areas of.

This report summarizes the results of a 3-year study of the oil and gas resources of the onshore and state waters of the United States by the U.S.

Geological Survey. A parallel study of the Federal offshore is being conducted by the Minerals Management Service.

Estimates are made of technically recoverable oil, including measured (proved) reserves, future additions to reserves in existing. The purpose of the National Oil and Gas Resource Assessment Project is to develop a set of scientifically based hypotheses concerning the quantities of oil and gas that could be added to the measured (proved) reserves of the United States.

The word assessment sometimes has the connotation of an inventory. But this is not the case in this study.

The committee found that the assessment's limitation to “conventional” resources was unnecessary in some cases. While the types of oil the assessors classified as unconventional generally contribute little to the nation's energy supply, some types of natural gas labelled unconventional represent a significant fraction of domestic production.

For example, natural gas produced from low. States are the primary regulators of oil and gas production on non-federal lands. In recent years, many oil and gas producing states have revised laws and regulations governing oil and gas production in response to changes in production practices as producers have expanded into tight oil, shale gas, and other unconventional hydrocarbon Size: KB.
