HOUSTON—Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) discussed passage of the Lands Package, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge exploration, the North Slope in her home state and the best path forward for the United States to secure a low-carbon future that also ensures reliable and affordable energy during a one-on-one interview with Hart Energy at CERAWeek by IHS Markit on March. 11.
Murkowski touched on energy policy initiatives that could have an effect on the industry going forward. She also talked about revitalizing production and encouraging new companies to work on the North Slope as well as Alaska’s vital role in the world’s energy sector.
The interview took place just before Murkowski joined Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) on the main stage at CERAWeek to discuss pragmatic solutions to low-carbon energy in the United States, which she also discussed in this interview.
Hundreds of oil and gas workers and supporters rallied and then testified in the unusually quick Energy and Transportation Committee hearing that took place two days after the bills introduction.
Texas State Senator Brian Birdwell advised the Texas Pipeline Association against complacency simply because the Trump administration is oil and gas friendly.
World energy demand is bound to be driven by population growth on the other side of the world from Washington, D.C., which seems narrowly focused on controlling energy consumption in the United States and Europe where, as data suggests, it’s already been falling.
