Fracking In California Under Spotlight As Some Local Municipalities Issue Bans

With a new administration and Congress arriving in Washington, we’ll be watching to see how American energy’s next chapter unfolds – the policy choices and actions that largely will determine the path for our country’s energy future in terms of resource access, infrastructure and other issues.

American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Jack Gerard will kick off the year’s energy policy conversation by outlining a number of top energy priorities during a speech Wednesday at API’s 2017 State of American Energy event.

Gerard’s speech will outline policy approaches that will let the U.S. capitalize on a generational opportunity to develop abundant energy reserves – to benefit consumers, the economy and the environment. Gerard also will likely point out that American energy is common ground for action in Washington – which U.S. voters broadly supported in November’s elections.
