As policymakers consider who will be the primary driver of America’s future energy development and innovation – Washington or the private sector – consider:

  • Oil and natural gas supplied 62 percent of the energy America needed in 2011 – and is projected by government to supply nearly 60 percent of U.S. energy demand in 2040.
  • The oil and natural gas industry provided $545 billion to the U.S. economy in 2011.
  • In just unconventional resources (shale and other tight rock), industry is expected to invest more than $5.1 trillion in cumulative capital expenditures by 2035. The industry could add 1.3 million new jobs in this sector by 2020 for a total of 3 million jobs supported – growing to 3.5 million jobs by 2035.
