API is On the Move to Its New D.C. Home
Posted February 14, 2019
A lot has been done since we first announced plans to move API’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., and thanks to the work of highly skilled craft tradesmen and women those plans have officially become a reality. In step with the innovation and advanced technologies that have led the U.S. natural gas and oil industry to meet record world energy demand while driving record CO2 emissions reductions, the industry’s leading national trade association has a new, self-sustaining LEED Platinum-certified building to call home.
API President and CEO Mike Sommers was joined by Sean McGarvey, President of North America's Building Trades Unions (NABTU), for a ceremonial ribbon cutting at the new state-of-the-art building today.
“From API’s new headquarters in Washington, D.C. to energy infrastructure projects across the nation, the natural gas and oil industry relies on skilled workers and the building trades unions to keep construction projects - from new buildings to energy infrastructure - safe and on-schedule. Together, we ensure that affordable and reliable energy reaches U.S. consumers when they need it and provide job opportunities in our communities – which in turn strengthens local and national economies.”
