DOE Offshore Oil & Gas Research
How DOE does Business
The Offshore Research Program sponsors research activities in two ways: Cost-Shared Research via public-private partnerships with industry, academia, and private labs; and, at the DOE’s National’ Laboratories, including the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) Research.
- Cost-Shared Research
Fossil Energy partners with a wide range of entities including academia, private sector companies/institutes, and foreign governments to gain a full range of expertise and resources for targeted research and development areas.
