President Trump’s visit to the Permian Basin and Double Eagle Energy in Midland, Texas, today showcased American energy development that will continue to benefit from the Administration’s efforts to streamline the regulatory landscape and improve permitting procedures.
Below is a statement that can be attributed to me, Craig Stevens, spokesman for the GAIN Coalition:
“President Trump’s leadership in U.S. energy development and distribution has allowed our country to reset the balance of global energy dominance in our favor. Unfortunately, there are those who want to see our nation shut-in its natural resources which would harm our economy and make us reliant on foreign sources of energy, giving an upper hand to nations like Russia, Venezuela, and Iran. God blessed Texas with natural gas and oil – natural resources that Americans should be able to access and utilize.
These vast resource reserves desperately need adequate infrastructure so projects – like the Permian Highway Pipeline – are critically important to ensure U.S. energy can get to market safely and efficiently. By expanding the state’s energy infrastructure network, the country can continue to improve its energy and national security, and provide domestic customers and foreign allies with the energy families and businesses need to thrive.”
