Oregon State Energy Assurance Plan
The Oregon State Energy Assurance Plan provides an overview of Oregon’s energy infrastructure, profiles the state’s energy resources, and identifies system interdependencies.
Further, the plan evaluates potential risks and hazards that could threaten the state’s critical energy infrastructure and offers solutions to reducing these risks. The OSEAP will include strategies and procedures that will minimize the effects of energy supply interruptions, ensuring rapid restoration of the energy infrastructure for public health and safety. OSEAP will increase awareness of the state’s energy lifeline risks and the plan to restore fuel, power and natural gas.
Please review the publications and follow the links below to learn more about risks to Oregon’s energy supply and distribution systems. There is also information on the state’s leadership efforts during and after a potential energy emergency affecting Oregon.

The Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries conducted a study on the effect of a large-magnitude Cascadia earthquake on petroleum (liquid fuel), natural gas, and electric energy facilities in the CEI Hub. This report was originally presented to Oregon Department of Energy and Oregon Public Utility Commission in August 2012.
