Summary

The compilation of resource assessments is standard for regions with known energy or mineral wealth across the country. Resource assessments provide statistical insight into the spatial occurrence and probable accumulation. At the same time, environmental or ecological assessments provide insight into the levels and patterns of natural resources associated with ecosystems in a region. The marriage of resource assessments with social and environmental assessments is a crucial step toward understanding the trade-offs in extracting a given resource. The ability to integrate these seemingly disparate assessments and to quantify the potential trade-offs or impacts of resource development are of broad interest (Bernknopf et al. (2014) and [...]

Purpose

The energySim package is an implementation of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Powell Center Working Group (Haines et al. 2014) approach that seeks to link natural resource assessments in a quantitative manner to inform broader resource management questions and decisions. The simulation technique is developed for use in conjunction with results from the USGS Continuous (or unconventional) Petroleum Accumulation Assessment methodology (Charpentier and Cook 2010).
