Safe and responsible energy development has made the United States the world leader in oil and natural gas production, with states including Colorado playing a leading role. Pro-development policies are needed to continue America’s energy renaissance, which is boosting the economy, making the U.S. more secure in the world and helping to lower emissions

North Dakota’s dramatic production increase is a big reason the United States leads the world in oil and natural gas output. As North Dakota energy production has expanded, so has U.S. output – helping the economy, benefiting individual households and making the country more energy secure. North Dakota is a microcosm of that larger energy picture.

A handful of stats stand out about New York state and energy: First, among the 50 states New York was the fourth-largest consumer of natural gas in 2014, according to U.S. Energy Information Administration data. More than half the state’s households heat with natural gas. New York also ranked fourth in the country in the use of natural gas for net generated electricity. The good news is a big part of New York sits atop the prolific Marcellus shale play, which could hold more than 9 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, according to one estimate.

Sitting in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and without oil and natural gas resources of its own, Hawaii must import virtually all of the energy it uses – 91 percent of it in 2013, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).  The state uses more jet fuel than any other energy source – understandable give its distance from the mainland. Meanwhile, 70 percent of the state’s net electricity generation in 2015 was fueled by petroleum liquids

Natural gas figures prominently in Nevada’s energy picture – despite the fact the state has no natural gas production of its own. Nevadans used more natural gas than any other energy source in 2014, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) – 39 percent of the state’s total. Natural gas accounted for 73 percent of Nevada’s net electricity generation in 2015, EIA says.

Energy = opportunity – in New Mexico and across the U.S. Indeed, New Mexico is energy-rich, ranking sixth nationally in oil production and eighth in marketed natural gas output in 2015. Oil production has more than doubled since 2009, helped by development of the Permian Basin shale in southeastern New Mexico with hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling.

Keeping offshore energy under wraps hinders U.S. security and blocks states like North Carolina from realizing the job and economic benefits that could come with safe development. North Carolinians recognize the potential benefits for their state as well as the nation, 64 percent of registered state voters saying they support offshore development.

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.

Nebraska is a state with significant energy potential. While the state's conventional oil and natural gas production has been declining, there’s considerable promise seen in the vast Niobrara shale play, an emerging producer in Colorado and Wyoming, which stretches south into the western part of Nebraska.

Montana is a leading energy producer in an energy nation – one that leads the world in oil and natural gas output. America’s ongoing energy renaissance is largely due to private energy investment and development – in the Bakken and other energy-rich fields.
