The purpose of this project was to work with the United States Coast Guard (USCG) on an energy related project covered under Executive Order 13605 Supporting Safe and Responsible Development of Unconventional Domestic Natural Gas Resources. The USCG is developing a policy which is under Executive Branch review and cannot be disclosed. We performed an economic and environmental analysis regarding this proposed policy. Using our research, the USCG was able to amend the policy to reduce costs to industry.
