Energy Security Initiative

This project examines opportunities between CREATE, the USC Energy Institute, and the USC Petroleum Engineering Program to develop collaborative research and education programs directed towards ensuring the security of U.S. oil and gas infrastructure and operations. The U.S. oil and gas infrastructure is the world’s largest, draws the largest share of industry global capital investment, and is designated as a critical infrastructure by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Accompanying the historical shift and growth in U.S. hydrocarbon capacity is a growing exposure to systemic physical and cyber-security risks.
