There’s an important, fact-based conversation the country should be having right now about safely harnessing its offshore energy – strategically valuable reserves of natural gas and oil that are critical to America’s long-term energy, economic and national security.

Unfortunately, lots of people may struggle to locate that kind of discussion in the jumble of myths, misinformation and falsehoods thrown out by natural gas and oil opponents who use confusion and fear to distract from the fact that offshore development is safe, technologically advanced and fundamentally important to building a better tomorrow. So, let’s bust some myths.

A fact-based conversation about America’s offshore strategy is critically important as policymakers make decisions that affect all Americans. Underscore the words “fact-based conversation.” While there’s passion associated with this issue, emotion can get in the way of sound policy – which is what we need for America’s energy and national security. Our vast offshore oil and natural gas potential has strategic, long-term importance and should be addressed accordingly with all voices, not just the loudest ones, heard.

With negotiations to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) headed for a seventh round, let’s underscore what we’ve said to U.S. negotiators since the start of talks last year: While we support attempts to modernize NAFTA, negotiators must not harm key NAFTA provisions that have strengthened the United States’ – and North America’s – energy position for decades.

U.S. crude oil production scored a perfect “10” in January – make that 10.2, to be precise, as in 10.2 million barrels per day (mbd). That record production, combined with a new high for refinery throughput and 6.3 mbd of crude oil and refined product exports, narrowed the price difference between U.S. and international crude prices last month and underscored the global impact of U.S. energy. All of this data and more may be found in API’s Monthly Statistical Report for January
