Another video interview from the State of American Energy event earlier this month in Washington, D.C. Here, Chevron’s Dan Fager talks about the pillars of sound, pro-growth energy policy – new access to U.S. oil and natural gas resources, common-sense regulation and tax policies that encourage new energy investment instead of discouraging it:
“What we shouldn’t do is impose punitive tax increases on the industry. If you want to target tax increases that will result in less investment and less jobs, that’s a negative that will result in fewer of those (energy) developments.”
