Earlier this year Customs and Border Protection Agency proposed modifications and revocations to approximately 30 identified rulings under the Jones Act. An economic study by energy consulting firm Calash says these changes likely would lead to decreased offshore oil and natural gas development, resulting in a number of significant negative impacts.

A new national API poll shows that American voters have serious concerns about the Renewable Fuel Standard and its mandates for ever-increasing levels of ethanol in the nation’s fuel supply. Key findings from the survey of 1,000 registered voters include 74 percent agreeing that federal regulations could contribute to increased costs for gasoline to consumers and 68 percent who're concerned about government regulations that would increase the amount of ethanol in gasoline.

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.

In the early going the Trump administration has signaled support for energy infrastructure by hastening approvals for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines and by ordering expedited environmental reviews and approvals for high-priority infrastructure projects, including energy projects. As the president’s executive order said last week, promoting clean and safe development of U.S. energy is in the national interest – and advancing infrastructure is critically important to ensuring that Americans receive the full benefits from that energy.

New government data shows that carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation are at their lowest levels in nearly 30 years, and natural gas is the key reason why. The data comes from the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s latest Monthly Energy Review, and it shows emissions associated with power generation last year were the lowest since 1989.

Colorado is a national leader in not only producing oil and natural gas but in protecting the environment. Our legacy of environmental stewardship is based on a transparent, collaborative process in which operators, state regulators and local officials work together to develop regulations based on Colorado’s specific geology.

A couple of important points may be drawn from President Trump’s “Energy Independence” executive order, and both stem from the new administration’s embrace of the ongoing U.S. energy renaissance. The first is that energy policy from Washington should foster continued safe oil and natural gas development and allow its responsible expansion, so that the country sees job creation, economic growth and increased security. Second, common-sense regulation and more efficient oversight support a competitive U.S. energy industry – that reasonable regulation and streamlined permitting will help create the climate for energy investment that America needs.

Safety is a core value of the oil and natural gas industry – safety for workers, communities near active operations and the environment, from protecting plants and animals to reducing emissions for cleaner air. Safety has continued to grow since the advent of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, bringing energy development to more and more areas across the country.
