DOE PLANS TO STEP UP EOR PROGRAM
Energy Sec. Hazel O'Leary has revised the U.S. Department of Energy's budget, speeding a program to demonstrate enhanced recovery projects for major types of oil fields. DOE's proposed budget for fiscal 1994, which begins Oct. 1, was increased $600 million to $19.6 billion, with the nonnuclear energy sector raised $500 million to $3.9 billion. Most of the increase is earmarked for a $205 million (35%) increase in funding for energy efficiency programs to $788 million.
