    Infrastructure Investment
Keeps Jobs and Energy Flowing

Dear David,

Updating America’s energy transportation infrastructure is both a necessity and an opportunity. Necessity because our current system was designed to move imports inland from the coasts – before surging production in North Dakota’s Bakken region, the northeastern U.S., and Canada. The lack of transportation capacity where it’s most needed can raise production costs and limit the ability to move supply to refineries, businesses and consumers – as we saw during the recent cold spell when the EIA issued “critical notices” about constraints on pipeline capacity for the New York and Boston markets.

Besides alleviating costly inefficiencies, modernizing the energy transportation network provides opportunities for significant job creation and economic growth. According to a new study from IHS, updating energy infrastructure to keep pace with new production realities will generate $1.15 trillion in capital investments by 2025 and contribute, on an average annual basis between 2014 and 2025, up to:

  • 1.15 million jobs
  • $75 billion in worker income
  • $120.58 billion in U.S. GDP growth
  • $27.45 billion in government revenues
  • 830,771 jobs from pipeline investment alone

Like the Keystone XL pipeline,VIDEO: Let's Build the Keystone XL Pipeline many of the infrastructure components we need are shovel-ready projects funded by private dollars. As the Obama administration’s Quadrennial Energy Review gets underway, let’s focus on streamlining the regulatory and permitting process for energy infrastructure, so that we can keep our energy flowing – along with growth in jobs and the economy.

Energy Tomorrow is a project of the American Petroleum Institute – the only national trade association that represents all aspects of America’s oil and natural gas industry – speaking for the industry to the public, Congress and the Executive Branch, state governments and the media. Rapid growth in natural gas production, thanks to vast shale deposits and hydraulic fracturing, is reviving America’s manufacturing and other sectors while helping reduce U.S. carbon emissions to a 20-year low. U.S. crude oil production has reached its highest point since 1997, due to production from shale and other tight rock formations, while reducing imports to their lowest level in more than 20 years.
