Abstract

The hard push for domestic oil and gas production suggests a developing divergence from environmentally sound practices. As states feel the pressure to match energy growth to national need, adequate consideration for the surrounding environment should continue to be a high priority. Through an analyses of twelve environmental assessment documents, recommendations for an oil and gas specific environmental assessment documentation guidance has been created. Guidance recommendations for the affected environment, mitigation options, alternatives, public comment process and the overall approach to an environmental assessment document is outlined within this capstone.
