INGAA Statement on National Petroleum Council Natural Gas Transportation Infrastructure Report

Don Santa, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America, issued the following statement on the National Petroleum Council’s report on U.S. Oil and Natural Gas Transportation Infrastructure:

“This report — Dynamic Delivery – America’s Evolving Oil and Natural Gas Transportation Infrastructure – is a reminder that America's pipeline network is directly linked to a strong economy and a cleaner environment. The United States is the world's largest producer of natural gas, and this clean-burning fuel has been the single largest factor in the United States reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. Unfortunately, as this report points out, too many infrastructure projects are being delayed or even blocked by unpredictable permitting processes — projects that could deliver more clean-burning and affordable fuel to millions of households. If we are to maintain America's role as a global energy leader, we must continue to invest in energy infrastructure.”
