API pleased with EPA decision on Risk Management Plan
"This is an important step for providing regulatory certainty and supporting safety and security in the oil and natural gas industry,” Macchiarola said in an API statement. “Now, Congress must act to repeal this unnecessary rule, as the rule misses the mark on improving the safety and security of our nation’s energy infrastructure.”
Macchiarola said the API is excited to work together with the organization and new presidential administration to further energy goals in the U.S.
“We look forward to working with the new administration and Congress on forward-looking energy policies that recognize America’s oil and natural gas production and refining industry as part of the solution to our nation’s economic, environmental and energy security goals,” he said.
