COASTAL EFFECTS OF OFFSHORE ENERGY SYSTEMS: AN ASSESSMENT OF OIL AND GAS SYSTEMS, DEEPWATER PORTS, AND NUCLEAR POWERPLANTS OFF THE COAST OF NEW JERSEY AND DELAWARE
An assessment of oil and gas systems, deepwater ports and nuclear powerplants off the Coast of New Jersey and Delaware. The report consists of two volumes: the first covers the findings and analysis and the second provides back-up material. This report concludes OTA's assessment of the onshore effects which may be associated with the implementation of one or a combination of the three technologies studied off the coast of New Jersey and Delaware. The report specifically (1) delineates the possible actions Congress may want to consider in future legislation and oversight dealing with offshore oil and gas, deepwater ports, and floating nuclear powerplants; (2) analyzes past and future government actions in preparing for the three technologies off New Jersey and Delaware; (3) presents the possible economic, political, social, institutional, and legal impacts of implementing the technologies; and (4) reviews the alternatives to the technologies or the implications of not implementing the technologies in the study area.
