A special thanks to U.S. Rep. Gene Green of Texas, who shared some thoughts about energy production associated with his Houston-area district, as well as an update on recovery efforts there after Hurricane Harvey, during an API Hill communicators event on Wednesday. ... Green described some of Hurricane Harvey’s impacts, and API President and CEO Jack Gerard, who hosted the event, said lots of Americans have the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast and Florida in their thoughts after Harvey and Irma. Gerard said the storms’ impacts help underscore the essential quality of accessible, reliable energy.

Thanks, shale and hydraulic fracturing!

Two news items prompt today’s gratitude. First, a new study of Texas’ Eagle Ford shale play shows the dramatic economic lift being provided by oil and natural gas development.
