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). Put another way: Oil and natural gas are and will continue to be America’s foundational fuels – because of their abundance, portability and high energy content – yet all other energy sources are and will play important roles as well. All of the above.

Alaska represents a major part of America’s energy past, present and future. North Slope oil production – accounting for more than 95 percent of Alaska’s overall output – and the Trans-Alaska Pipeline that connects the oil fields with Valdez in the south were and are critically important to our country’s energy security. To ensure America’s future energy security, it’s imperative that Arctic oil and natural gas production in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas off Alaska’s northern coast be included in the United States’ strategic energy planning.

Part of industry’s commitment to the country and its future growth and prosperity is supporting the educational needs of the next-generation workforce that will bring that future to life.

With experts saying much of that growth and prosperity – as well as the accompanying careers – will be built on a foundation of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, a major part of industry’s outreach is focused on developing students’ interest in these topics as early as possible.
