LIMITATIONS OF ROCK MECHANICS IN ENERGY-RESOURCE RECOVERY AND DEVELOPMENT
The Ad Hoc Panel on Rock Mechanics Problems That Limit Energy Resource Recovery and Development was created within the U.S. National Committee for Rock Mechanics of the National Research Council. Its purpose was to define limitations imposed by rock-mechanics problems on energy-resource recovery and development and to recommend promising research that will help to remove those limitations. The Committee, in formulating the Panel's role, arranged for communication with supporting government agencies and developed a plan for selected Subpanels. A briefing was given in June 1976, primarily to government agencies, to present the planned activities of the Panel. Six Subpanels were established to deal with specific energy resource and development areas: (1) Geothermal Energy Exploration and Production; (2) Mining and In Situ Recovery; (3) Nuclear-Waste Disposal; (4) Oil and Gas Recovery; (5) Underground Storage-Fuel Oil, Gas, Water, or Compressed Air; (6) Under-Ocean Tunneling for Petroleum Recovery. This report presents their findings.
