Add the heft of Rice University’s respected Center for Energy Studies to the weight of scholarly analysis urging an end to America’s four-decades-old ban on domestic crude oil exports. In a new study, the center lays out a case for U.S. crude oil exports that builds on the findings of IHS, ICF, Brookings, the Aspen Institute/MAPI and others – saying that lifting the ban would result in significant economic and foreign policy benefits to the U.S.
The study explains that the export ban already is presenting a “binding constraint” on the domestic market, leading to “discounted” pricing for lighter crudes produced by America’s energy revolution. It also notes that large volumes of lighter domestic crudes, in excess of what the U.S. refining sector can use, with no access to other markets, are discounted compared to global crude prices.

News this week of increased domestic oil and natural gas production is welcome indeed – because increased production means jobs, economic growth and greater energy security for America.
That the president is calling for more American oil and natural gas, while acknowledging that the hard-working men and women of the oil and gas industry are helping lead our economic recovery is great, too. Thanks, Mr. President, for recognizing that this industry can create jobs and produce the energy to fuel our economy, while building a base for manufacturing and other industries.
