➤ EIA UPDATES US ENERGY MAPPING SYSTEM
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)
recently updated its online Energy Mapping System,
a free, interactive, comprehensive visual reference for
energy infrastructure in the U.S.
Several layers in the system were updated, allowing
users to see locations of several types of energy infrastruc-
• Natural gas underground storage facilities
• Petroleum product terminals
carbon gas liquids pipelines
• Power plants with capacity of 1 megawatt or more
• High-voltage electricity transmission lines
• Electric retail service territories
pipelines and natural gas pipelines
• Coal mines, both underground and surface
• Oil and natural gas platforms in federal waters
• Sedimentary basins with tight oil/shale gas plays
Updates to these layers also include more recent infor-
mation for many of the interactive energy infrastructure
maps EIA provides:
• Energy disruptions map, which combines energy infra-
structure information with real-time storm layers from
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
• Flood vulnerability assessment map, which shows
infrastructure vulnerable to rising sea levels, storm
surges, and ;ash ;oods, based on information from the
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
EIA’s State Energy Pro;les show these map layers and
highlight energy facts for each of the 50 states, the District
of Columbia and U.S. territories.
