Description:

NOTE: This descriptive area provides an overview of
this Funding Opportunity.
YOU MUST READ THE FUNDING OPPORTUNITY MASTER ANNOUNCEMENT FOR DETAILS ON
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, EVALUATION CRITERIA AND HOW TO PREPARE AN
APPLICATION
UNDER AN AREA OF INTEREST OR TECHNICAL TOPIC. Please scroll to the bottom
of
this page under the heading Full Announcement and Other Files and click
on
the link to access the Master Announcement.

You may submit an application through either one of the two following
sites:
(1) www.Grants.gov, or (2) http://e-center.doe.gov.

While you may choose to submit an application through either method, please

keep in mind that if you choose to submit through the www.Grants.gov
portal,
you should allow approximately 14 days to fully register to submit an
application. We recommend that you begin this registration process as soon
as
possible.

The DOE has prepared this funding opportunity so that the same mandatory
files,
file names and file extensions, and the information in each file will be
the
same whether you submit through (1) www.Grants.gov or (2)
http://e-center.doe.gov. The method of submittal should not affect the
content
of the application, nor will it affect how the DOE evaluates the
application.

Whether you choose to submit through www.Grants.gov or
http://e-center.doe.gov,
you are strongly cautioned to begin transmission at least 24 hours in
advance
to allow for sufficient time for uploading files, and to ensure adequate
time
to address problems or concerns with transmission of your application, if
any.

Questions relating to the grants.gov system or on how to submit an
application
should be directed to support@grants.gov or 1-800-518-4726.

Questions regarding how to submit an application through IIPS can be
e-mailed
to the IIPS HELP Desk at helpdesk@pr.doe.gov or by calling 1-800-683-0751.

Please direct all inquiries on the content of the solicitation to the point
of
contact identified in the solicitation and on this cover page.

There are five separate Areas of Interest and various Technical Topics
within
Areas of Interest to which an application can be submitted under this
Announcement. This cover page contains information and allows for
submission of
an application for Area of Interest 3: PUMP Field Demonstrations ONLY.

DE-PS26-05NT15600-3 Area of Interest 3: PUMP Field Demonstrations

This PUMP Area of Interest is an effort to identify and demonstrate
additional
solutions to production constraints and bring these into use by the
industry.
Applications under this Area of Interest should address a technical barrier
to
production in a region with a demonstrated solution.

Teaming is encouraged to facilitate an integrated approach and scheduling
tasks
in parallel for a near-term result. Teaming with established technology
transfer networks is encouraged. The application partners could include,
but
not be limited to producers, producer organizations, service companies,
universities, State agencies, non-Federal research laboratories, and Native

American Tribes or Corporations. National Laboratories may be team members
in
a application, but shall not receive more than 25% of the funding for the
total
cost of the project.

Examples of projects that will not be accepted include the following:

No applications for paper studies will be accepted.

Projects that duplicate or resemble projects previously funded under the
PUMP
program will not be favorably received unless the application clearly
offers a
benefit not addressed by the earlier project.

No projects involving the purchase of oil reserves will be accepted.

No projects for the production of natural gas, coal bed methane or
condensate
only will be accepted. Projects must focus on the recovery of oil with or
without associated gas.

No applications that require extensive research and development of a
technology
will be accepted. The technologies proposed for consideration in the PUMP
program must be suitable for testing and verification in the field without
extensive laboratory development.

No projects that are to simply return fields to production or to in-fill
drill
a field will be accepted.

Solutions to an identified problem can be regional or national, but must be

applicable to specific existing production prospects or oil fields in
identifiable regions. These prospects, fields and regions should be
specified
in the application. Technologies or processes proven in another region or
for
another purpose may be applicable to overcome constraints in a new region
or
for a new purpose. Projects concerning new management approaches and
computer
tools will also be considered, but there must be a field demonstration of
the
benefits resulting from their use. Because of the short term nature of
the
PUMP program, technologies lacking laboratory or field pilot scale evidence
of
efficacy prior to this Funding Opportunity will not be considered.

Applicants must show proof of access to any proposed filed demonstration
sites
for the duration of the project. If the technology or approach requires
special regulatory approval, some form of assurance must be submitted that
the
project will not be delayed significantly or blocked by the regulatory
agency.

Aggressive technology transfer that will promote the use of those practices
is
a required part of the project. Applications must include a technology
transfer component. Applications should demonstrate how the technology
transfer activities will increase the likelihood of the results being used
by
others within the region and/or in other regions Applications should also

discuss the extent of the impact of a successful project through transfer
to
other companies or government agencies. These impacts should be expressed
in
terms of geographic applicability, the amount of oil resource that can be
recovered, and industry segments or government agencies that would use the
results of the project and how that would result in more oil being
recovered.
