Environmental Conservation. The Oil and Gas Industries, Volume One.
National Petroleum Council, Washington, DC.
Prepared in response to a Department of the Interior request, this report is a comprehensive study of environmental conservation problems as they relate to or have impact on the petroleum industry. It contains the general comments and conclusions of The National Petroleum Council based on an analysis of detailed data. For presentation of key conclusions and recommendations, Part I groups the issues into categories of general law and regulatory policy, the economics of environmental conservation, and specific environmental concerns for air, water, and land pollution. Part II summarizes the detailed data and covers: (1) general considerations (requirements for environmental conservation; and law and regulatory policy), (2) industry operations (fundamentals of industry operations; exploration and production; refining; storage, transportation, and marketing; and major oil spills), and (3) use of industry products (fundamentals of product use; mobile and off-highway equipment--emissions and trends; and stationary plants--emissions and trends). Conclusions indicate the industries are conscious of their responsibilities for environmental conservation and are dedicated to a continuing approach to the solution of environmental problems which lie within their purview. A glossary of terms and list of references are appended. (BL)
