By now you have probably seen “Impossible 2.0,” API’s new ad highlighting how natural gas and oil make our modern-day lives possible. They not only generate electricity and power vehicles but are the building blocks in so many of the fundamental necessities and comforts we enjoy each day — from communication, to transportation, to food, education, entertainment and more.

We hope you’ve seen “Brainpower,” API’s new ad highlighting the smart technologies and data analysis that natural gas and oil use to safely and efficiently bring Americans the energy that empowers their modern lives while also meeting seemingly impossible challenges.

“Brainpower” also is about natural gas and oil deploying technologies and innovating to get cleaner and help the United States reduce its emissions, leading to cleaner air. The women and men of natural gas and oil are focused on this. They want other Americans to know that they care – about lowering emissions and the environment – because they’re members of the community, too. You’ll see it in behind-the-scenes interviews conducted during the “Brainpower” ad shoot.

The message in “Brainpower,” API’s newest ad, is straightforward: The natural gas and oil industry leverages smart technologies, data analysis and more to safely and efficiently develop the energy Americans use to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.

An industry that already was pretty brainy has upped its IQ.

During recent visits to three universities, my goal was to have conversations with students who might be part of the next generation of the energy workforce – talking with them about energy, global markets, the potential for rewarding careers and the advanced technologies we use to safely and responsibly develop the energy our country needs to grow its economy and increase its security.

I visited with 110 graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Pennsylvania, Tulane (photo below) and Rice universities – many of whom hope to work in the energy industry, and others who recognize the ways energy affects careers in manufacturing, finance, trading and other fields.

By now you may have seen our new ad, “Air Up Here,” highlighting the role natural gas has played in helping to lower U.S. carbon dioxide emissions to their lowest levels in nearly 25 years.

While the ad focuses on how the industry is helping reduce greenhouse gases in our air, you may not realize that every cut in the ad features consumer goods the industry makes possible or makes better. Take a look at the ad and see if you can identify all of the products – many of which you likely own – made from materials produced from natural gas and oil. Go ahead, we’ll wait.

Where do you want to go today, what do you want to do? Natural gas and oil get you there, and there’s a great chance they’ll be a part of whatever you’ve got planned – from the routine to the extraordinary. As fuels and as the essential elements in so many products, large and small, natural gas and oil help Americans power past the seemingly impossible every day.

In the natural gas and oil industry, measuring opportunity starts with 10.3 million – the number of jobs our industry supports. Because a job is economic livelihood for individual Americans and their households. They’re the avenue to something better. 

Listen to Carmen Segovia talk about opportunity. She’s an advanced IT business analyst with Marathon Oil who recognizes that her professional success stems from hard work, family and opportunity within our industry to grow and prosper.

Protecting the environment and the communities where we operate is a core industry value. We talk about the commitment and we demonstrate it – in technologies that enhance environmental performance, in tangible results such as reduced carbon emissions and in the efforts of trained professionals like Lola Owolabi, an environmental engineer with Phillips 66’s Los Angeles Refinery.

Climate activists are trying to rally folks around an extreme agenda of halting new fossil-fuel projects, denying natural gas and oil industry’s financial support by pressuring lenders and investors and pushing for a fast transition to renewable energy. (With New England and other parts of the U.S. shivering under winter conditions, agitating to deprive the U.S. of its two leading energy sources seems pretty tone deaf.) Well, let’s just say their caricature of our industry is all wrong.

Today’s natural gas and oil is new, technologically advanced, forward-looking and committed to strengthening the communities where we operate. Our companies are environmentally active as never before – while producing the energy the United States needs today and will need tomorrow to build a better future. This isn’t your daddy’s oil.

We’ve written before about how natural gas and oil, and the products derived from them, help make today’s automobiles more modern, efficient and safe, from the vehicles racing on the NASCAR circuit and Indy to the family car. This week at the Washington Auto Show we got an up-close look at a broad range of cars, including a fair number of futuristic concept cars and technologies. The show runs through this Sunday at the D.C. Convention Center.
