RPSEA Selects Letton-Hall Group in the First Round of Projects to Award $9.6 Million for the Ultra-Deepwater Program.
The Research Partnership to Secure Energy for America (RPSEA) has selected the Letton-Hall Group for negotiations leading to an award under its contract with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory and in support of the Ultra-Deepwater and Unconventional Natural Gas and Other Petroleum Resources Research and Development Program that was established pursuant to the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This is the first of two rounds announced for the 2010 Ultra-Deepwater Program selections.
"The 2010 Ultra-Deepwater Program selections add to the current 41 program projects to form the foundation of a strong, interconnected assembly of tools and processes that will ultimately close the technological gaps in this challenging, but needed environment," said RPSEA Vice President, Ultra-Deepwater Program James Pappas. “The program goal is to unlock the potential for domestic hydrocarbon resources in water depths of 1,500 meters or greater by creating safe and environmentally sound solutions to energy needs.”
The Letton-Hall Group was awarded the contract for More Improvements to Deepwater Subsea Measurement. This project follows the previous project, Improvements to Deepwater Subsea Measurement, conducted by Letton-Hall Group from 2008-2011. Several promising tasks from that project were selected for additional development.
