EEIA Press Conference Statement in Support of H.R. 702
April 30, 2015
Many jobs have been lost, and many more are at risk today, because of the obsolete ban on crude oil exports. In the energy supply chain, there are three workers supporting energy for every one job at the production level. This has been documented by a recently completed IHS study showing the American jobs that would be created by lifting the ban on US crude exports.

Because of the ban, our producers lack access to global markets, and so our record crude oil production is trapped inside the US and has swamped our refining capacity. So producers are cutting back, and this is costing these supply chain workers their jobs in large and growing numbers.

EEIA Comments on Cuomo Decision to Ban Hydraulic Fracturing in New York
December 17, 2014
EEIA released the following comments by President & CEO Toby Mack on the decision by New York Governor Cuomo to ban hydraulic fracturing in New York:

"This is an ill-advised decision based on politics. It is contrary to science and the energy industry's record of safely and responsibly developing natural gas in many other energy-rich areas of the country. It deprives all citizens of New York of the major economic and employment benefits of the state's natural resource wealth. It is particularly contrary to interests of landowners, businesses and communities in the southern tier counties of New York where major natural gas reserves are known to exist and where economic development is sorely needed.

In neighboring Pennsylvania, shale gas development has created 46,000 new supply chain jobs to date and will be responsible for 30,000 additional new supply chain jobs between now and 2025. Most of these jobs are with local businesses such as contractors and service and supply firms. Apparently the potential for rising standards of living for tens of thousands of New York families was outweighed by political considerations. We hope that this adverse outcome for so many New Yorkers will be temporary and subject to reversal in the not-too-distant future.
