MOVING A NATIONAL RESOURCE. A COMPENDIUM ON INTERREGIONAL COAL TRANSPORTATION

This compendium was prepared as a four-region (V, VI, VII, and VIII) input to the National Energy Transportation Study (NETS) by the Interregional Coal Transportation (ICT) Task Force. It addresses only the aspects of coal and the transportation issues related to its movement within and across the regions. The ICT Task Force was formed in 1977 and is now represented by the Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, and Denver regional offices of the Department of Energy (DOE). Region III, Philadelphia, has contributed as the eastern states' voice for comparative purposes. The papers' purpose is to identify the key state and regional issues which will be of consequence to the NETS endeavor. This compendium is presented in an unedited form and does not reflect official DOE policy. Specifically, the recommendations made in the Executive Summary are potential considerations as seen from a regional perspective.
