Industry Experience, Dr. Steven A. Gabriel
1995-2000 Project Manager
ICF Consulting, Fairfax, VA
(ICF Consulting Oil & Gas Group)
Directed and implemented Systems Engineering, Operations Research/Operations Management/Econometric modeling projects in energy for both public and private sector clients. Employed project management methods extensively.
Selected projects include:
- Modeling a production-storage-demand network of the North American natural gas system to answer operational and strategic questions regarding market equilibria, the value of gas storage, etc. (for the U. S. Dept. of Energy using optimization techniques)
- Development of a Windows-based decision support system for the North American natural gas system to analyze market equilibrium prices, quantities, and flows as well as other values (for the U. S. Dept. of Energy using a Geographic Information System)
- Providing expert advise on quantifying the value of expected unserved energy (i.e., unmet demand) in the U. S. electrical power grid (for public and private sector clients using probability theory and optimization techniques)
- Modeling the effects of carbon stabilization efforts in Canada and the resulting effects on the U. S. natural gas system (for the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency using optimization techniques)
- Providing expert advise on an optimal electrical power flow model for incorporation in the National Energy Modeling System (for the U.S. Dept. of Energy using nonlinear programming concepts)
- Modeling the demand for electrical power by season and hour (for a private sector client using statistical regression methods)
- Modeling the demand for natural gas in the U. S. industrial sector (for the U. S. Dept. of Energy using statistical regression methods)
