Earlier this year Customs and Border Protection Agency proposed modifications and revocations to approximately 30 identified rulings under the Jones Act. An economic study by energy consulting firm Calash says these changes likely would lead to decreased offshore oil and natural gas development, resulting in a number of significant negative impacts.

Until now, anti-energy rhetoric has mostly remained detached from reality – and largely unaccountable. No more. A new study finds this minority’s anti-fossil fuel agenda would produce harsh economic impacts affecting virtually every part of our society.

America needs more infrastructure to ensure that the benefits of the U.S. energy renaissance are fully realized across the country. Benefits include affordable energy but also the jobs created to build pipelines, processing stations and other projects. Jobs like Kelly’s.

In the early going the Trump administration has signaled support for energy infrastructure by hastening approvals for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines and by ordering expedited environmental reviews and approvals for high-priority infrastructure projects, including energy projects. As the president’s executive order said last week, promoting clean and safe development of U.S. energy is in the national interest – and advancing infrastructure is critically important to ensuring that Americans receive the full benefits from that energy.

New government data shows that carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation are at their lowest levels in nearly 30 years, and natural gas is the key reason why. The data comes from the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s latest Monthly Energy Review, and it shows emissions associated with power generation last year were the lowest since 1989.

A couple of important points may be drawn from President Trump’s “Energy Independence” executive order, and both stem from the new administration’s embrace of the ongoing U.S. energy renaissance. The first is that energy policy from Washington should foster continued safe oil and natural gas development and allow its responsible expansion, so that the country sees job creation, economic growth and increased security. Second, common-sense regulation and more efficient oversight support a competitive U.S. energy industry – that reasonable regulation and streamlined permitting will help create the climate for energy investment that America needs.

The Bureau of Land Management’s “venting and flaring” rule should be repealed, which we’ve urged Congress to do under the Congressional Review Act (see here, here and here). The U.S. House has voted for repeal, and the Senate shouldn’t delay in following suit. BLM’s redundant, technically flawed rule already is having negative economic impacts and could put energy production and important progress on reducing emissions at risk.

There’s great opportunity to responsibly develop Alaska’s great oil and natural gas resources. This should be guided by a forward-thinking regulatory framework that prioritizes regularly scheduled lease sales as necessary to enhance U.S. energy security and maintain America’s position as a global energy superpower.

The global LNG market is developing, and the spot market’s growing liquidity could favor U.S. exporters, already benefiting from abundant domestic supply and ready access to the Panama Canal. America has the natural gas and access to markets. Artificial restrictions on LNG export project development should be removed. The potential benefits to the United States are significant.
