Description:

Amendment 001 has been issued due to problems
relating to the Bureau of Land
Management apos;s interuption with e-mail service. PLEASE READ AMENDMENT
001
ATTACHED BELOW.

The objective of this funding opportunity is to receive applications for
cost-shared research projects that address specific Federal lands access or

produced water management issues faced by the oil and gas industry. The
goal
is to provide solutions to issues that are limiting domestic on-shore or
off-shore oil and gas production while providing the same or higher levels
of
environmental protection. These Federal lands access and produced water
management issues are limiting domestic production by restricting
additional
development or by adding costs that cause operators to abandon existing
wells
while substantial recoverable resources remain in the ground.

The topics within the two Areas of Interest described below are
multi-faceted
problems. In many cases, the overall solution may vary by region and may
require several separate sequential steps to resolve completely.
Applications
are expected to describe the overall problem and the region or regions
affected. Applications should also describe how the proposed project fits
into
the overall solution.

Applications should describe as completely as possible the impact that the
project will have on increasing or maintaining domestic production either
nationally or from an identified region. The description of the production
impact should discuss in detail the resource affected and the amount of
domestic production that can be added or maintained as a result of the
successful completion of the project. The cause and effect relationship
between project results and increased production should be explicit. If
the
project is part of an overall solution, then the production impacts of the
proposed project and the overall problem should both be discussed.

Applications should discuss the likelihood of success of the project and
the
likelihood that the project will result in actually solving the problem
being
addressed. In discussing the success of the project, applicants should
identify any potential barriers to the successful completion of the
project.
In discussing the likelihood of solving the problem, applicants should
discuss
the likelihood that the impacts or benefits described above will be
realized.

Applications must include a technology transfer component. Applicants
should
demonstrate how the technology transfer activities will increase the
likelihood
of the results being used by the appropriate Federal agency or by other
producers within the region and/or in other regions.

Applicants must show proof of access to any necessary field sites or data
sets
for the duration of the project. If the technology or approach requires
special regulatory approval, some form of assurance must be submitted that
the
project will not be delayed significantly or blocked by the regulatory
agency.

The two areas of interest for this funding opportunity are:

1) Access to Oil and Gas Resources on Federal Lands

Projects will be accepted that address problems affecting either oil or
natural
gas or both. The specific topics to be addressed are discussed in Section
1.3
of the Master Announcement (See Master Announcement 15460.doc BELOW).

Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) contractors are
not
eligible for an award under this announcement, but they may be proposed as
a
team members. The FFRDC effort, in aggregate, shall not exceed 25% of the
total estimated cost of the project, including the applicant apos;s and the
FFRDC
contractor apos;s portions of the effort.
