Title: Market shares and individual company data for US energy markets: 1950-1984

Abstract

Revised and updated data summarize trends in concentration in US energy markets. In addition, the report discusses methodology and definitions, provides company-by-company data for 1984 and several earlier years on market shares in various segments of the petroleum industry, and similar market share data for coal, uranium, and all-energy combined. Most measures of concentration in 1984 increased because of oil company mergers, but ratios are still below the level of a decade ago. While domestic oil production concentration rose in 1984, only the 8-firm concentration ratio showed a significant increase. Oil reserve ownership is more concentrated than production. An increasing concentration in refining capacity and refinery runs reflects large-company mergers and shutdowns by small refiners. 101 tables.

  • 1982 data is presented on concentration in various US energy markets, and it also provides revised data for previous years where available. The report is intended to be a handy compilation of statistics on concentration in US energy markets with particular emphasis on the petroleum industry. The report contains four parts. First, it summarizes trends in concentration. This summary includes tables giving concentration indexes for the various energy markets for 1982 and several earlier years. Secondly, it discusses methodology and definitions. Thirdly, the report provides annual company-by-company data on market shares in various segments of the petroleum industry. Finally, themore » report presents similar market share data for coal, uranium, and for all-energy combined.

  • This report updates earlier work prepared by the American Petroleum Institute. It presents 1985 data on concentration in various US energy industries, and it also provides revised data for previous years, where available. The report is intended to be a handy compilation of statistics on concentration in US energy industries with particular emphasis on petroleum. The US energy industries examined include: (1) crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids production; (2) natural gas production; (3) proven crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids reserves; (4) proven natural gas reserves; (5) refining capacity; (6) refinery runs; (7) interstate oil pipeline ownership;more » (8) motor gasoline sales; (9) bituminous coal and lignite production; (10) uranium concentrate (U/sub 3/O/sub 8/) production; (11) the top energy producing companies on a BTU basis; and; (12) the top energy producing companies on a dollar basis.« less
  • The Reagan administration's budget cuts and policies have forced the US from its lead in research and development of solar and conservation technologies. Whether the free-market approach puts US manufacturers at a competitive disadvantage in international markets where foreign competitors receive government support and cooperation was the subject of a three-day hearing. Witnesses were asked to help assess the effects of US policies relative to the status of competitors and to make recommendations on the appropriate level of government participation in maintaining US leadership. The witnesses represented government technology and trade agencies, renewable industries, and economic and foreign affairs advisors.more » (DCK)« less
  • The report reviews major issues concerning European and Japanese competition with US industries engaged in the production and export of energy conservation and renewable energy equipment. US Government spending on research and development and program strategies for technology development and commercialization are compared with other industrialized nations, and policy constraints which may affect the overall coordination and organization of US export promotion activities are identified. The report highlights activities of US technical assistance and banking agencies that help US firms compete abroad, especially in developing countries.
  • Eight witnesses testified at this hearing to review the photovoltaic industry and its market potential in light of the solar-energy-research budget cuts. Industry spokesmen noted the importance of federal assistance in developing solar technology if there is to be continued growth and commercialization. They spoke of foreign competition and international cooperative agreements, but agreed that a viable industry will remain even if research and development proceeds at a slower rate. Witnesses represented solar industries and government agencies. (DCK)
