Earnings in Perspective

Earnings cover thumbnail

The oil and natural gas industry is massive because it has to be to effectively compete for global energy resources. The industry’s earnings make possible the huge investments necessary to help ensure America’s energy security. The earnings allow companies to reinvest in the facilities, infrastructure and new technologies that keep America going strong well into the future while generating returns that meet shareholder expectations. API has assembled this primer to help consumers and policymakers better understand how the earnings of the oil and natural gas industry compare with other industries, who benefits, and where the money is going.
