THE TRANSPORTATION OF ENERGY COMMODITIES FOR THE APPALACHIAN REGION. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The research focused on the need to expand the capacity of fixed facilities, such as locks and dams along the inland waterway system; new crude, petroleum product and natural gas pipelines and in new rail lines. Requirements for barge and railroad equipment and for maintenance of right-of-way of rail lines to support the transportation of energy commodities were also estimated. The study examined the capacity of energy transportation system for states east of the Mississippi to meet national energy needs in 1985 and 2000. Potential levels of capital investment to maintain and expand capacity of the energy transportation system were also made.
