API’s new advertisement communicates some of the ways natural gas plays an integral role in our daily lives: recreation, jobs, a cleaner environment, time efficiency and invention. And more – much more than we can depict in a 30-second ad. “Natural Gas Doesn’t Just Cook Dinner.” No, indeed.

Summer – like every other season of the year – also is about energy. Natural gas and oil are integrally involved in making our summers cooler, more accessible, safer and better in ways too numerous to count. But we can start with 50. This week we will launch a series of posts – “America’s Summer of Energy” – that shows how energy brings us summer, through the lens of the 50 states.

Since its launch in February, API’s Power Past Impossible communications campaign has highlighted the many ways natural gas and oil play important roles in our every-day lives. Sure, they fuel our vehicles – everyone knows that. But they’re also involved in things that aren’t so apparent, ranging from space exploration to fashion and art. A new motion picture, "Lowriders," illustrates.

API’s first-ever Super Bowl ad, announcing the launch of our new “Power Past Impossible” communications campaign, had a few folks online questioning the ad’s connection between oil and space exploration – questions we’ll show are off-base later in this post.

Confusion by some about oil and space flight actually points to the main thrust of the ad and the campaign: Natural gas and oil are much, much more than just fuels. Oil and gas are all around us – in paint, makeup, the components in bionic parts, life-saving medical technology, clean fuels, space suits and … rockets. When you start thinking about it, the list is virtually endless.

The Super Bowl ad and the national communications campaign it launches are a big deal for API and the more than 600 companies that belong to our trade association. The campaign (see the website, here) will underscore how natural gas and oil are a vital part of the everyday lives of American consumers … how they make the impossible achievable. It also will convey our industry’s self-view: relevant, empowering and futuristic

America’s energy renaissance is producing record volumes of natural gas, helping supply our country’s energy needs and strengthening our security while also advancing climate goals, including reducing carbon dioxide emissions and key pollutants. Thanks to cleaner-burning natural gas, you can make a strong “green” case for hydraulic fracturing, as some are doing.

Oil and natural gas companies are committed to the communities where they operate – where their employees work, live and raise their families.

Good stewardship does not end with ensuring our nation has a plentiful and affordable oil and natural gas supply. Many companies are also prioritizing efforts to reduce waste by constantly developing and applying innovative and productive ways to use and reuse the various byproducts of energy development. These efforts, which have grown in the last few decades, have been successful both for companies that innovate and for the communities where they operate.
