NET ENERGY ANALYSIS: AN ENERGY BALANCE STUDY OF FOSSIL FUEL RESOURCES

This report examines fossil fuels from resources in the ground through production processes which deliver usable energy ready for consumption. It accounts for the complete direct and indirect energies which must be used to produce energy from fossil fuels, including the energies which drive or subsidize the production. It includes those energies used in the production of materials needed to build and operate the industrial production and transportation facilities which either directly produce energy or which indirectly provide energy or materials to the energy production processes.
