The JOULE subprogramme on energy from fossil sources relates to two areas: hydrocarbons (oil and natural gas) and solid fuels (coal). The aim of research in the hydrocarbons area is to improve and extend the knowledge necessary for the easier and more efficient discovery and exploitation of oil fields and for a more complete and effective utilisation of the extracted hydrocarbons. In this way, long-term oil availability will be increased and a lower dependence on uncertain oil sources will be obtained. To increase the effectiveness of the research, the subprogramme selected a number of proposals to develop well coordinated research actions. This publication describes the research projects included, together with the objectives. Other details presented include project leader and participant information, starting date, project duration and the EC financial contribution in ECU.
