As this issue of the EXPLORER arrives in your mailbox, a group of AAPG members has just finished another Geosciences Congressional Visits Days in Washington, D.C. During this annual pilgrimage to the U.S. capital, AAPG members gather with members of our sister geoscience societies to talk to policymakers and their staff about the importance of the geosciences to society.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently released an analysis of technologies available to cut water use in hydraulic fracturing and thermoelectric power plant cooling to identify how water-scarce areas of the country could benefit from these technologies (GAO-15-545). Perhaps of special interest to readers is the GAO analysis of waterless or low-water stimulation fluids, although GAO concludes they are either unproven or applicable to only a few geologic formations. Thermoelectric plant cooling, represents 38 percent of U.S. water withdrawals. However, natural gas produced using hydraulic fracturing and natural gas combined cycle power generation reduces water use in power generation by up to 60% relative to coal and nuclear plants.

Congress long has been interested in ending the ban on the export of U.S. crude oil – and their interest in oil exports has increased with the recent international agreement to lift the nuclear-related sanctions on Iran.

Wind power generation is growing rapidly. However, new installations have lagged since the initial expiration of the production tax credit in 2012 and the revised expiration in 2014. The EPA Clean Power Plan (CPP) will boost wind energy. Growing wind generation requires more than installing a wind turbine; it also requires building new transmissions lines to move power from rural generating areas to population centers that need the power. Wind energy also requires that system operators have sufficient reserve generating capacity, usually from hydro or natural gas, for use when the wind is not blowing—luckily, natural gas generation has grown 27 percent in the past six years.
