WASHINGTON, D.C. - Marty Durbin, President of the U.S. Chamber’s Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement regarding an agreement between the United States and European Union to increase natural gas supplies in Europe:
"We are pleased to see the Biden Administration recognize the critical role that the U.S. should play to provide clean, reliable natural gas supplies to Europe and other allies. Today’s announcement is an important signal that must be followed up with policy and actions to encourage domestic oil and natural gas production and associated pipeline and export infrastructure. A broader long-term strategy built around energy security and accelerating the clean energy transition is also required to face global threats. The American business community stands ready to support this effort."
