The Research Partnership to Secure Energy for America (RPSEA) recently announced its 2010 request for proposals for its Small Producer Program. The foundation plans to award US $3.2 million for oil and gas research and development projects. RPSEA is now in its fourth year of releasing RFPs under its research and development program that was established by the Dept. of Energy pursuant to the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Other areas of research include Ultra-Deepwater, Unconventional Natural Gas, and other petroleum resources. The projects selected under the current program will focus on unlocking hydrocarbon resources from mature fields with existing surface footprints. Innovations in enhanced oil recovery technology could impact domestic supply in most mature fields where up to two-thirds of original oil-in-place is often left behind. For a complete description of the RFP process, due dates, and previously funded projects visit RPSEA’s Website at http://www.rpsea.org/req_proposals/
