ANGA applauds candidates' support of natural gas during debate

Regina Hopper, president and CEO of America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA), issued the following statement in response to the Oct. 3 debate between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney:

“This evening, both President Obama and Governor Romney highlighted natural gas as an important component of U.S. energy policy. The safe and responsible development of America’s vast natural gas resource drives economic growth, provides generations of workers with good-paying jobs, produces affordable, clean electricity and contributes to revenue used by communities and states across the country. For these reasons, along with its environmental and energy security advantages, President Obama and Governor Romney both routinely tout the benefits of natural gas. It is encouraging to see that increased production and use of this clean, affordable American resource is one area on which both candidates agree.”

ANGA represents 29 of the nation’s leading independent natural gas exploration and production companies. ANGA members are dedicated to increasing the appreciation of the environmental, economic, and natural security benefits of clean-burning, abundant, American natural gas.
