The report provides advice on how the oil and natural gas industry and government can better prepare for and respond to significant disruptions to oil and natural gas supply chains caused by natural disasters, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, etc. Although this study focuses on emergency scenarios caused by natural disasters, the outcomes from this study will be useful to DOE and industry in responding to impacts from a much broader range of potential incidents and vulnerabilities that result in energy disruptions.
