Lucian Pugliaresi Presents on Energy Security at JINSA Meeting for IDF Officers

On April 10, 2018 in Washington, DC, the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA)  invited Lucian Pugliaresi to meet with a group of visiting officers of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to discuss North American energy trends and energy security policy. A major natural gas find off the coast of  Israel is bringing enormous opportunities for regional natural gas supplies, but also presents some important energy security challenges. A copy of Lucian’s presentation to the visiting IDF delegation can be found here.

MEDITERRANEAN SEA, ISRAEL - FEBRUARY 2013:  In this handout image provided by Albatross, The Tamar drilling natural gas production platform is seen some 25 kilometers West of the Ashkelon shore in February 2013 in Israel. The offshore Tamar drilling site which was originally dispatched from a shipyard in Texas at the end of last year is due to start producing natural gas next week. Over the past few years Israel has suffered from a shortage in natural gas, but with the new platform that weighs 34,000 tons and will be mainly operated by Israelis, the US company Nobel Energy which owns a 36% stake in Tamar, hopes to change Israel's energy situation as well as the economy as a whole.

Untapped Potential: Why Developing ANWR Still Makes Sense

EPRINC’s Will Pack and John Dahlberg explore the large net economic value of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in their recent paper entitled: “Untapped Potential: Why Developing ANWR Still Makes Sense.” This value is mainly driven by the expensive existing infrastructure, which will soon be lost without further development in the North Slope.

EPRINC Issues Report on Technical Constraints and Cost Risks to the Renewable Fuel Standard

Max Pyziur and Lucian Pugliaresi on Technical Constraints and Cost Risks from the Renewable Fuel Standard

Under US law, increased volumes of biofuels must be blended into gasoline and diesel fuels. A variety of factors, including future demand for transportation fuels, falling crude oil prices and technological constraints, are all providing new challenges to successfully implementing the biofuel mandate.

This EPRINC assessment demonstrates that the RFS (Renewable Fuel Standard) requirements create considerable long-term costs, risks, and uncertainties to fuel producers, and are likely to raise transportation fuel costs substantially.
