Senators Create Bill to Reduce Flaring

Posted: Updated:

Sen. John Hoeven has joined three other U.S. Senators in introducing a bill that they say will reduce flaring and expedite liquid natural gas exports.

According to Hoeven the North Atlantic Energy Securities Act will cut red tape that that delay onshore energy production by eliminating unnecessary delays and reform the process for energy permitting.

"This is about energy, but it is about creating jobs. It is about growing our economy. It is about the national security of our country and our allies and it's about having a long term strategy that works. Not going from crisis to crisis," says Hoeven.

Other Senators that are pushing the Legislation include Senator John McCain, Lisa Murkowski and John Barrasso.
