ICYMI: Sen. Murkowski on Platts Energy Week
ICYMI: Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, was a guest this week on Platts Energy Week, hosted by veteran energy journalist Bill Loveless. The interview includes a discussion about Sen. Murkowski's ongoing push to modernize U.S. energy export policies and the urgent need to increase oil production from Alaska.
Murkowski has been at the forefront of the national debate about lifting 1970s-era restrictions on crude oil exports, beginning with the release in February last year of Energy 20/20, and more recently with a series of reports demonstrating not only the benefits of lifting the ban, but also a step-by-step process on how to do it.
In the second part of the Platts interview, Sen. Murkowski talks about why improving access to Alaska’s oil and gas resources is vital to the state's future.
