Decade 4 (2016 – 2024) began with QRI serving as the Subject Matter Expert (SME) on two major legal battles. One case was for a utility company, Gulf Power, over a groundwater issue in Florida and the second case was for an oil company, Gulfport Energy, for one of the many oilfield-related suits in Louisiana. Thus, QRI continues to do the same work that she was founded on – Pit Closures and ESS with the addition in Decade 3 of a robust Federal portfolio that enhances sustainability during recessions and the many natural disasters that occur in the USA. Decade 4 has had an excessive amount of Storm Events à 2016 Flood of Baton Rouge ($10B); 2017 Hurricanes Harvey – Irma – Maria ($265B); 2018 Michael ($25B).
