Hoeven Says Energy Policy Will Create Energy Independence

Posted: Updated:
North Dakota can help create energy independence for the U.S. and reduce European reliance on Russian natural gas.

Statoil, which is one of the companies operating in western North Dakota, says this is a critical time to establish economic and energy stability.
And Senator John Hoeven says a clear national energy policy can help make it happen.

"It creates the opportunity for more infrastructure so we can move gas and oil to markets, to refineries here, but also it allows us to export natural gas to places that need it. So, instead of flaring it here, companies, such as Statoil, have a market for the natural gas," says Sen. Hoeven.

Hoeven says the U.S. already produces more natural gas than it uses, and if even more of it is captured instead of flared, it can be exported to help our allies, boost our economy and continue to create jobs.
