NET ENERGY ANALYSIS: AN ENERGY BALANCE STUDY OF FOSSIL FUEL RESOURCES. SUMMARY REPORT

This report examines industrial energy production in fossil fuels, emphasizing those of the Western United States. It accounts for the complete direct and indirect energies which must be used to produce energy from fossil fuels. These include the direct and indirect energies which drive or subsidize the production. It includes those energies sequestered in materials needed to build and operate the industrial production and transportation facilities which either directly or indirectly are necessary for energy production. The study includes all steps in bringing fossil fuels from reserves in the ground to the point of end use (exploration, extraction, conversion, and transportation).
