Energy should be a unifying issue – it does, after all, impact every American. In the face of unprecedented global challenges, our industry’s workforce has proven that we are problem solvers, rising to meet the energy needs of our nation and contributing to the broader community’s pandemic response.
This month the American Petroleum Institute (API) released their annual State of American Energy report that examines the essential role of natural gas and oil in our lives. The nation’s resource potential and the capabilities of its energy industry remain strong, but we are at a crossroads. As barriers arise to affordable and reliable energy supply, they also threaten the prosperity of American families and businesses. Thus, leadership and advocacy on our part are critical for us to continue laying the foundation for a better tomorrow.
We at ConocoPhillips stand ready to help the country rebuild economically while continuously improving our environmental performance. And we are not alone. America’s natural gas and oil industry is focused on delivering cleaner, reliable and affordable energy.
Especially in this moment, Power in Cooperation members are vital to our shared energy future. With more than 18,000 members from every state, the Power in Cooperation advocacy community seeks to find common ground in addressing our nation’s energy challenges through enactment of smart, responsible energy policies and regulations. We believe that together, we can develop a balanced approach that advances environmental goals, protects U.S. energy security and helps drive our nation’s economic recovery.
