  • Economics and government policies have forced electric utilities to abandon their reliance on new capacity to meet customer demand in favor of conservation. Legislation passed in 1978 and 1980 requires utilities to promote conservation practices, but economic pressures had already prompted programs to lower demand and introduce nontraditional energy sources. Many utilities remain unconvinced that conservation is the proper route, although it is attractive in areas of growing population. Conservation strategies that are cost-effective in one region many have less value in another, making the incentives variable. Tax credits and other incentives quickly revealed some of the inequities of themore » new legislation. Among the techniques used by utilities are weatherization programs, load management, rate reforms, and home-energy audits. The Federal government has recently joined the utilities in this effort, but most state public utility commissions have been slower to cooperate. (DCK)« less
  • The largest field in the lower 48 states runs on steam injection and well-honed maintenance. The glory days of the Midway-Sunset field had been gone for more than four decades by the beginning of the 1960s. Production had peaked in 1914 with an average of 94,140 bo/d. The field, except for an occasional spike, had been in decline until steam-injection began. The advent of steam injection to increase recovery of the field`s heavy crude began on a pilot basis in 1963. If anyone had predicted the dramatic effect steam would have on Midway-Sunset as well as other California heavy crudemore » fields, the prediction would have been met with total disbelief. The first steam project in California had been initiated by Shell Oil Co. in the Yorba Linda field in the Los Angeles Basin in 1960. Other pilot projects followed in the Coalinga and Kern River fields. Today, Berry Petroleum Co. continues as one of the field`s most successful steamers. The company`s ongoing steam efforts have played a major role in making Berry the top California-based independent producer in the field. Steam contributed to the posting by Berry of a 32% increase in this year`s second quarter earnings.« less
  • Total absorption gamma-ray spectroscopy is used to measure accurately the intensity of γ emission from neutron-unbound states populated in the β-decay of delayed-neutron emitters. From the comparison of this intensity with the intensity of neutron emission one can deduce information on the (n,γ) cross section for unstable neutron-rich nuclei of interest in r process abundance calculations. A surprisingly large γ branching was observed for a number of isotopes. Here, the results are compared with Hauser-Feshbach calculations and discussed.
