For the oil and gas industry, former buildings, facilities, well pads and rigs often hold promise of a second life for both local communities and the environment, whether it’s turning an offshore rig into an artificial reef, reclaiming an onshore drill site or repurposing a building or port to fit a variety of socially beneficial needs. All are examples of industry’s commitment to being a responsible neighbor on land and in the sea.

With Halloween nearly upon us, just about everyone’s got a set of stencils for turning pumpkins into fantastic jack-o-lanterns. The U.S. Energy Department’s collection of energy-themed stencils is terrific, but lacks patterns for oil and natural gas. Considering that oil and gas supply 65 percent of the energy Americans use today and are projected to furnish 67 percent of our energy in 2040, that got us to thinking: “Hey, without oil and natural gas, there wouldn’t be pumpkins to carve!”

Piggy-backing on the start of the Series, we’ve filled out a lineup card of our own – America’s Energy Lineup. It’s a fantastic lineup with contributors at every position – no “Who’s on First, What’s on Second” shenanigans with this group . They’re all major leaguers, a great mix of energy sources that includes reliable veterans as well as exciting up-and-comers, anchored by clutch, big-time producers in the key power spots, Nos. 3 and 4.

Bottom line: When America’s all-of-the-above energy lineup is in the field, we all win.

Making industry operations more energy efficient makes sense on two levels: It’s good for the environment and it’s good for business. It’s another way the oil and natural gas industry is making a difference in areas and communities across the country.

Protecting our habitats is something industry has championed for some time.  Back in 1987, Occidental Petroleum came across a rare looking plant on one of its drilling sites in Colorado. The plant, later identified as the parachute penstemon, can only be found in Colorado and is considered one of the rarest plants in North America.

Access to land and water is important to industry, but these are critical to the wildlife that live there, from birds and butterflies to all kinds of animal life. The use of modern hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling – which allows widespread oil and gas operations from a single surface well pad – is a big part of limiting industry’s footprint. So is understanding the local wildlife.

Seriously, we’re seriously into Fantasy Football. According to The Fantasy Sports Trade Association, more than 57.4 million people age 12 and above played fantasy sports in 2015. Since we’ve been talking in pestilential terms, that’s nearly as many Americans who suffer colds a year.

To which I say: Thank goodness for energy.

No disrespect to Cam, Dez, AD and Odell, but without modern energy there’d be no pro football as we know it, and for yuks we’d be back in the 1850s talking about Fantasy Horseshoes or something. Thanks to the power of energy, there’s the NFL – and Fantasy Football is everywhere and accessible to nearly everyone.

Our industry understands that water is a valuable natural resource. That’s why oil and natural gas companies are constantly improving their water management and conservation practices. Company efforts typically fall into three different categories.

Every year the U.S. Open draws more than 700,000 tennis fans to Queens. For more than two weeks the U.S. Open grounds are abuzz with live music, great food and people from around the globe watching some of the most amazing tennis in the world. The atmosphere is – well, electric.

The energy generated by fans, players and the world’s media isn’t the only thing juicing the 900-acre tennis center. The U.S. Open, like all facets of American life, runs on energy – energy that illuminates courts, keeps crowds cool during the hot days of late August and early September and brings fans and players from around the world to New York.

The oil and natural gas industry’s continuous quest for new technologies and innovations – ensuring energy supplies that are affordable, reliable and better for the environment – makes support for renewable energy projects across the U.S. and around the world a good fit within an all-of-the-above energy strategy.
