The Trump administration is taking the first step to more fully harness the United States’ offshore oil and natural gas wealth, beginning work on a new five-year offshore leasing plan – the federal blueprint for future offshore development. It’s great news for America’s future energy security, for consumers and our economy.

Natural gas, with a lengthy value chain that reaches all 50 states, today is benefiting American consumers, supporting millions of jobs and supplying billions to the national economy – and will continue doing so well into the future, a new ICF report finds.

With public hearings planned next week on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), let’s review some of important reasons that any modernizing of NAFTA – as has been broached by the administration – must retain critical provisions supporting and growing North American energy integration, interdependence and energy security. This is fleshed out in API’s official NAFTA comments, submitted to U.S. Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer last week.

Energy is opportunity. Energy infrastructure allows opportunity to become reality by bringing the benefits of natural gas, oil and refined products to consumers – individuals, businesses and industrial users. Last week API released a new study detailing the extent of the many positives resulting from developing needed U.S. natural gas and oil infrastructure, out to the year 2035. These are measured in more than a trillion dollars in investments and economic growth, potentially generating more than 1 million jobs. This supports a vision of growth and prosperity that can touch every state in the union, not just those that are big energy producers.

Before the resurgence in domestic oil and gas production, our national future was markedly constrained, because our energy future was constrained. Thanks largely to modern hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, there is opportunity for economic growth, increased security and significant progress on climate and air quality. Many of these points are underscored in a new ICF study on how much oil and natural gas infrastructure is possible in the U.S. through 2035

Until now, anti-energy rhetoric has mostly remained detached from reality – and largely unaccountable. No more. A new study finds this minority’s anti-fossil fuel agenda would produce harsh economic impacts affecting virtually every part of our society.

America needs more infrastructure to ensure that the benefits of the U.S. energy renaissance are fully realized across the country. Benefits include affordable energy but also the jobs created to build pipelines, processing stations and other projects. Jobs like Kelly’s.

With the Trump administration making good on its pledge to expeditiously approve the Keystone XL pipeline, we can look at the project for what it would be – a significant piece of North American energy infrastructure that holds the promise of supporting broad economic growth and strengthening American energy security.

The global LNG market is developing, and the spot market’s growing liquidity could favor U.S. exporters, already benefiting from abundant domestic supply and ready access to the Panama Canal. America has the natural gas and access to markets. Artificial restrictions on LNG export project development should be removed. The potential benefits to the United States are significant.

The North American energy market is progressing toward self-sufficiency in terms of liquid fuels, perhaps arriving in just a few years. According to EIA, the quantity of oil and other liquid energy sources produced by the three countries could outpace their liquid fuels consumption as soon as 2020. With liquid fuels production growing at a rate of 1 percent per year over the projection period while demand grows more slowly at 0.2 percent per year, supply can overtake demand, EIA figures (Table A21) show  – provided trade flows remain open.
