The United States has been a net importer of energy since the 1950s, but the shale boom has turned the tide.

It’s a New Era for American Energy – and Energy Exports
We depend on energy, every single one of us. From the moment we get up in the morning until we lie down at night – and then after we drift off to sleep – energy is all around us.

Energy is Everything
The Energy Information Administration released its Annual Energy Outlook today and project that sometime in the mid-2020s, the U.S. will become a net energy exporter.

U.S. Energy Outlook: Growing Output, Growing Security
We released our 2017 State of American Energy report today. Be sure to check out the report and archived video from the event.

The State of American Energy

"EPA avoided using available sites from a cooperative industry, and also abandoned other avenues of study that left state agencies to pick up the slack."

EPA Fracking Report Deliberately Ignores Key Studies To Embrace Inconclusive Results
Energy is all around, making for a brighter, warmer, more prosperous holiday and every day. [ Link ] [ Link ]
"It’s time to move forward, and a top priority should be fully embracing the opportunity presented by future U.S. offshore energy development in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans – opportunity that’s threatened by the president’s just-announced withdrawals."

New U.S. Energy Course Starts Offshore
"Greater pipeline capacity would solve the winter supply problem, allowing the region to avoid these natural gas price spikes and reduce the cost of producing electricity."

Editorial: Reality versus wishful thinking
Exporting more U.S. LNG is good for the economy, good for the environment and furthers our geo-political interests in Europe and Asia.

Exporting more liquefied natural gas in America’s national interest
Guest column: What has ultimately happened here in our state is that the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s voice has now become largely overshadowed. Environmental activist organizations who have never before shown much interest in our state used a massive social media machine to drive misinformation about the pipeline, the protests, and are accusing law enforcement and the National Guard of...

Guest opinion: Setting record straight on Dakota Access Pipeline
"New England paid about $7 billion more for electricity the past two winters than other regions with easier access to natural gas, such as the Midwest. In fact, five of the top nine states with the highest residential electricity prices are in New England."

Why CT Needs Expanded Gas Pipelines
Reliable natural gas supplies to fuel our electric grid are essential. This is especially true now, as cold temperatures remind us how important it is to have ample natural gas in the pipeline for our homes, as well as our power plants, to keep our lives moving as usual.

George Stark: Marcellus Shale gas pipelines deliver lower energy prices
“Widespread and systemic are not vague terms and frankly, the evidence is overwhelming. There are no examples of systemic operational issues that result in contamination in any of these formations, let alone many examples of widespread contamination in any formation."

On Fracking, EPA Should Stand With the Science
It is possible to have a growing economy while also reducing energy-related emissions. America's energy renaissance has proven that - thanks to fracking.

More on Natural Gas’ Role in ‘Decoupling’ Economic Growth, Emissions
"Rhode Island is at a crossroads in its efforts to meet energy needs responsibly and affordably. It is critical that we choose a path that keeps natural gas in the equation to continue to improve air quality, keep costs down, and meet our rising energy needs."

Armand E. Sabitoni: Natural gas must be part of R.I.'s energy mix
Rep. Kevin Cramer writes that the standoff isn’t about tribal rights or water, but a White House that ignores the rule of law.

What the Dakota Access Pipeline Is Really About
Thanks to our nation's great abundance of natural gas, gas-fired power plants are also the most cost-effective way to reduce CO2 emissions. Gas-fired plants are cheaper to build and maintain than wind, solar and nuclear generation.

Personal View: Allowing electricity markets to drive production reduces emissions, costs
The global LNG market is developing, and the United States is well-positioned – thanks to abundant domestic natural gas – to be a major player in it.

U.S. Energy’s Growing Strength in Global Markets
Looking to America’s future energy policy path, the new administration and Congress should support what works. That is, market-based strategies fostering more of the safe energy development that’s boosting U.S. prosperity, helping consumers and advancing climate objectives – all without sacrificing economic growth.
