Don Santa, president and chief executive officer of the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America, today commented on the results of the presidential and Congressional elections and on the natural gas pipeline industry’s willingness to work with the nation’s newly elected leaders:
“The natural gas pipeline industry looks forward to working with President-elect Trump and the new Congress to ensure that our nation’s energy policies continue to facilitate the development of natural gas and the pipeline infrastructure needed to transport this abundant, clean-burning, domestic fuel to American consumers.
“Natural gas is critical to rebuilding our manufacturing economy and lowering consumer energy costs. Our industry stands ready to help America reach its energy potential—while creating jobs and economic prosperity—by continuing to serve as the indispensable link between natural gas producers and consumers.”
“We intend to work with new leaders to advance the use of natural gas, maintain the safety and reliability of natural gas pipelines and ensure a continued fair, timely and transparent review process for energy infrastructure projects.”
