Reductions in EIA’s Energy Data and Analysis Programs

Along with reductions at the Census Bureau and reductions in federal openness websites, we now have word from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) that budget reductions will “require significant cuts in EIA’s data, analysis, and forecasting activities.”

The press release has a long list of projects and publications that will reduced, terminated, and curtailed:

Cuts include:

  • Do not prepare or publish 2011 edition of the annual data release on U.S. proved oil and natural gas reserves.
  • Curtail collection and dissemination of monthly state-level data on wholesale petroleum product prices, including gasoline
  • Terminate updates to EIA’s International Energy Statistics
  • Halt preparation of the 2012 edition of EIA’s International Energy Outlook.
  • Eliminate annual published inventory of Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in the United States.
