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.

Maryland lawmakers pushing for a permanent state ban on hydraulic fracturing should touch base with their constituents first. A new Goucher College poll finds that among those who have an opinion on fracking, most don’t want the state to make the current fracking moratorium permanent. Goucher surveyed 776 people earlier this month and found 40 percent oppose banning hydraulic fracturing, with 36 percent supporting a ban.

Washington is having a discussion right now about reforming the tax code, no doubt reflecting the importance of taxes and the economy during the 2016 election campaign. The right approach will seek reforms that foster job creation and economic growth, and, encouragingly, that’s what the new administration has talked about in its early days. This approach should be applied to our industry as well.

The Keystone XL pipeline is on again. A new president with a different view of America’s energy and infrastructure needs has the project advancing again. Late last month pipeline builder TransCanada submitted a new application for a cross-border permit with the U.S. State Department. This week the company applied for route approval in Nebraska – a key step for a project that will bring hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil daily from Canada and the Bakken region in North Dakota to Gulf Coast refineries.

A new era of U.S. energy exports is under way. The United States started freely trading crude oil in January 2016, following congressional legislation to end a 1970s-era ban on exports. The same month the first cargo of U.S. LNG produced from shale left Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass export terminal. Last month, export volumes from Sabine Pass reached a record 1.476 billion cubic feet of gas equivalent, according to Platts Analytics. Exports of LNG and crude oil both offer multiple economic benefits.

America’s energy renaissance is the story of domestic natural gas and oil production that’s making the country stronger economically and more secure while benefiting consumers and improving the environment. A pretty good tale, indeed.
