Sen. Murkowski to Deliver Speech on Energy Trade Tuesday, Jan. 7 at the Brookings Institution
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) on Tuesday will discuss the future of U.S. energy trade and its implications for the economy and national security as part of the Brookings Institution’s Energy Security Initiative.
The recent dramatic increase in domestic production from all sources of energy has resulted in major changes in U.S. energy trade and provided new opportunities for the economy and job creation. The 2014 Annual Energy Outlook from the U.S. Energy Information Administration expects domestic oil production to nearly double from 2008 levels to 9.6 million barrels per day by 2019.
Murkowski, the ranking Republican on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, will share her views on how the United States can best benefit from this reversal in energy scarcity. Murkowski will also release a white paper on energy exports –
A Signal to the World: Renovating the Architecture of U.S. Energy Exports – at the event as part of her blueprint for the nation’s energy policy, Energy 20/20: A Vision for America’s Energy Future.
The event will be live webcasted on Brookings’ website. (Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 9 a.m. EST)
