Sometime in the mid-2020s, U.S. energy officials project, two key lines measuring energy imports and exports will cross, and the United States will have achieved something quite special – the advent of an era in which America is a net energy exporter. That’s one of the big projections contained in the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s newly released Annual Energy Outlook for 2017 (AEO2017).

We need to change our course on energy – in offshore policy and other areas – to benefit American consumers, U.S. businesses, our economy and the country’s energy security. Given the fact it takes years to realize the benefits of offshore energy development, the administration’s decision to shelve much of America’s offshore potential is devastatingly shortsighted, bordering on the irresponsible, in the face of projected increasing global demand for oil and natural gas.

America’s energy renaissance has propelled the United States to world leadership in oil and natural gas production. It’s historic and timely, given the fact oil and gas supplied 65 percent of the energy the U.S. used in 2015 and are projected to supply 67 percent of the energy we use in 2040 by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
