Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:Project FocusAssessment of Vulnerability of Californias Transportation Fuel Sector to Extreme Weather-Related Events and Identification of Resilience OptionsThe goal of this research is to provide an initial assessment of the vulnerability of Californias transportation fuel sector to extreme weather, in close collaboration with petroleum sector stakeholders and with sufficient detail to identify resilience options, strategies for their implementation, and priorities for further investigation.Proposed research will clarify petroleum sector vulnerability and adaptation options for current and projected extreme weather-related events. The research will also consider opportunities for coping with barriers (financial and otherwise) to adaptation, including integration of adaptive strategies into planned/periodic upgrade and replacement cycles.Applications will consider a number of impacts (see bulleted list below) and, in collaboration with stakeholders, identify those that are most important over the next 20 to 40 years and prioritize those for more in-depth investigation.Although recipients will be proposing research areas and determining the level of detail for each area (through public workshop input as detailed below), applications must show how recipients will address the RD&D needs of all of the following areas. Input from stakeholders, including public workshops (detailed below), will guide the relative priorities and levels of detail for the research areas.Potential impacts of drought on water supplies (including recycled water) available for refineries and other transportation fuel-related operations.Potential impacts of weather-related risks on distribution of transportation fuel, including pipelines as well as crude-by-rail (CBR) operations. This should include consideration of flooding (inland, flash, and coastal), wildfire, and potential risks posed by subsidence associated with drought-enhanced groundwater withdrawals.Potential impacts of electrical grid outages on refinery operations, distribution, and fuel supply.Impacts of projected mid-century sea level rise coupled with storm surge and wave dynamics on wharf structures and operations as well as on gravity-assisted outfalls for wastewater discharge impacts.
