Campaign ’16: Energy Is The Question

As Campaign 2016 barrels into the home stretch, all Americans should be energy voters because secure energy is fundamental in all our lives and to the future of our country.

Energizing Alaska

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.

Energizing Oklahoma

As the United States’ fifth-ranked state in total energy production, Oklahoma has virtually the entire package: oil and natural gas (both top-five in output nationally), the sprawling oil pipeline and storage hub at Cushing, refineries and renewable energy – found in all that wind that comes sweepin’ down the plain, of course.

Energizing Wyoming

Wyoming ranks second among the 50 states in overall energy output, producing 9,362 trillion Btu in 2014, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Only Texas produced more energy. Wyoming is playing an important part in a U.S. energy renaissance that has made our country the world’s leading producer of oil and natural gas – resulting in jobs, economic growth, greater energy security and consumer savings.

Energizing Alabama

The more you look at the 50 states individually, the more you realize how the United States really is an all-of-the-above energy nation. Alabama is another good illustration. The state ranked 15th in oil production in 2015 and 16th in natural gas output in 2014. In terms of power generation, natural gas has been Alabama’s leading fuel for electricity since 2010.

Energizing Florida

Production-wise, Florida is in the second tier of states in output (about 2 million barrels of oil in 2015, compared to Texas’ 1.26 billion barrels) – yet geologists believe there may be large oil and natural gas reserves on the outer continental shelf off Florida’s western coast.

Energizing Maine

According to the U.S. EIA, nearly 90% of the state is forested. Hence the nickname: the Pine Tree State. Yet, Maine is an all-of-the-above energy state – even with all those trees. Fuels from petroleum and natural gas are the next three largest energy sources, accounting for 52.8 percent of Maine’s energy use.

Energizing Arizona

You might not think of Arizona as an energy state and to be sure, it ranks in the 30s in both oil and natural gas production. Arizona’s per capita energy consumption ranks 45th out of the 50 states. Yet, the state’s Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station is the largest nuclear power plant in the country, and the state ranked second in the country in utility-scale electricity generation from solar energy.

Energizing South Carolina

South Carolina relies heavily on nuclear power for electricity generation. Four existing nuclear power plants supplied 54 percent of the state’s electricity in 2014, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).

Energizing Louisiana

Louisiana is a big energy producer – especially when you count oil and natural gas from the areas off the state’s coast – and it’s home to major portions of the country’s refining sector. In addition, with the lifting of the ban on crude oil exports and the opening of new natural gas liquefaction facilities, Louisiana is a hub for new U.S. energy exports.

Energizing New Jersey

New Jersey is a key refining state, home to three major refining facilities that make the state an important fuels distribution center on the East Coast. These refineries have benefited from the U.S. shale energy renaissance, which has provided an abundant supply of domestic crude oil for processing into a number of refined products Americans depend on every day.

Vote for Energy Careers – Vote4Energy

Oil and natural gas industry job creation played a critical role in moving the United States out of the great recession a few years ago. And, because of energy demand growth and demographic changes on the way, our industry promises to be a leading job creator in the future.

Vote for America’s Defense – Vote4Energy

We shouldn’t forget that America’s energy revolution – surges in domestic oil and natural gas production – is a positive development for members of the armed services. A stronger, more energy secure America that’s less dependent on imported oil, is an America that’s less impacted by energy-related tensions around the globe.

Vote For Hoops – Vote4Energy

From the lights and hot water to the uniforms and television broadcasts, energy is what makes “March Madness,” well – a slam dunk. And all of it falls into what I will describe as the oil and natural gas “Final Four” bracket: arenas, transportation, materials and broadcasting.

Vote For Slainte – Vote4Energy

Beer is water, malting barley, hops and yeast – requiring lots of energy. Energy to grow, harvest and store the barley and hops in the right conditions. Energy to transport the grains to breweries.

America’s Natural Gas Progress and Its Discontents

The increased availability of affordable, reliable, cleaner-burning natural gas is a major factor in lowering consumer power costs, with more electricity generated from natural gas-fired generators than coal-fired generators during five months last year, EIA says.

Lifting Oil Export Ban A Win for Economy, Security

Almost exactly 40 years after it was instated, the ban on crude exports has been lifted. A relic of ‘70s-era energy scarcity, the ban makes no sense now that the United States leads the world in oil and natural gas production.

President Rejects Keystone XL, America Loses

With President Obama’s unfortunate decision to reject the Keystone XL pipeline, look for a number of reports and analyses advancing the notion that the president’s decision is a “stunning defeat” for our industry, Canada and members of Congress who support the project. We disagree.

Poll: Large Majority of Colorado Voters Favor Increased U.S. Oil & Natural Gas Development

“This poll shows that energy is a top issue for voters next year because it plays a key role in job creation and economic growth,” said Tracee Bentley, executive director of the CPC. “Colorado voters understand the opportunities that pro-development policies create and the need for an all-of-the-above energy policy that helps produce more domestic energy and lower energy costs for American consumers.”
