和President Biden in Michiganpromoting his $174 billion government plan to boost electric vehicles and charging stations, let’s be clear on three things:
这natural gas and oil industry doesn’t oppose electric vehicles (EVs). To the contrary, a number of API members are involved in developing technologies and infrastructure that support EV adoption.
在美国自由市场经济中，政府不应该推动市场和消费者toward a specific policy outcome, with mandates that limit Americans’ transportation choices.
It’s unfair to hit up taxpayers to publicly fund EVs and their charging infrastructure – without regard to whether they own an EV.

While the cyber attack on the pipeline interrupted supplies at numerous retail outlets along the East Coast this week, the incident and response by our industry and associated sectors showed the multifaceted fuel supply system is resilient and works quickly to restore supplies during difficult circumstances – as it has following hurricanes and other unusual events.
Since the Colonial Pipeline Company experienced a ransomware attack last Friday, the natural gas and oil industry has worked with government to bring a critical piece of infrastructure back online and use alternate methods of transportation to meet the nation’s energy demand. This is America’s largest fuel pipeline – spanning 5,500 miles from Texas to New Jersey – and normally delivers millions of gallons of gasoline, jet fuel and other petroleum products every day to consumers in the South and along the East Coast.
For now, industry stakeholders and energy experts are working with the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) in the Department of Transportation (DOT), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other federal agencies to alleviate short-term supply disruptions.

关于5,500英里的殖民地管道的网络攻击，每日运送来自墨西哥湾沿岸的墨西哥湾沿岸的数百万加仑的燃料产品，介于两者之间，强调了对天然气和石油工业的一些批判性重要观点 - 它的弹性和敏捷性为了减轻供应中断，投资管道基础设施为经济和现代日常生活的重要意义，以及行业保护自己的持续承诺和来自网络罪犯的关键资产
行业已经致力于努力，并将继续与拜登行政行动，以减轻网络攻击造成的供应中断。这些包括A.hours-of-service exemptionfor those transporting gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other refined products to 18 states, as well as afuel waiverfor states under EPA requirement to use reformulated gasoline (RFG) to be allowed to use conventional gasoline amid the disruption – helping fuel suppliers manage inventories until Colonial returns to normal operations.

Every three years the International Oil Spill Conference (IOSC) brings together professionals from the private sector, government and non-governmental response community to discuss the science and advanced technologies of preventing incidences, responding in the rare event of a spill and restoring affected areas. IOSC 2021 is occurring virtually this week, again focused on four pillar themes: prevent, prepare, respond, restore. Below, conference remarks by API President and CEO Mike Sommers.
What brings us together is a common purpose: preventing oil spills and “getting to zero.” To accomplish that, API is proud to help convene an event dedicated to exchanging ideas and sharing lessons learned from around the world as we collectively work toward a safer, cleaner, better future.

Over the weekend, Colonial Pipeline Company experienced a cybersecurity attack, which has since been identified as ransomware, forcing the shutdown of one piece of U.S. critical energy infrastructure. Colonial Pipeline is发出更新about their operations and response activities as well as precautionary and other measures they’ve taken to protect the safety and security of their energy systems. Read their press statements这里。
API member companies are committed to protecting America’s critical oil and natural gas infrastructure, safeguarding intellectual property and providing affordable, reliable energy for everyday use.

这World Bank is out with its annualGlobal Gas Flaring Tracker Report，并有关于美国的正面新闻，从天然气和石油生产中，强调行业的承诺在继续供应经济实惠，可靠的能源美国人每天使用的同时减少排放。
这report showed a 32% decrease in U.S. flaring from 2019-2020. This included decreased flaring in three key shale regions – the Permian, Bakken and Eagle Ford. Lower production last year associated with the pandemic was a factor, but the report also notes infrastructure improvements to capture and use gas that in the past would have been flared.
