Abstract:

Department of Energy management and technical direction of fossil fuel demonstration projects differ substantially from that contemplated by Synthetic Fuels Corporation officials. Under requirements of the Energy Security Act of 1980, the Synthetic Fuels Corporation cannot have any direct role in the construction or operation of a demonstration project. Although the Corporation can participate in management decisions, primary management responsibility must be given to the private sponsor of the project. While DOE would use over 100 staff members for monitoring and direction, the Corporation may only have one full-time employee devoted to the project relying more heavily on the sponsors management and control system.
