Doug Burgum on Environment

 

 


Innovation--not regulation--solves oil & gas challenges

We believe innovation--not regulation--is the best way to solve complex challenges in a digital age. Adding value to our enormous natural gas production is a tremendous opportunity. Converting gas to plastics or fertilizer--using gas to heat commercial-scale greenhouses for year-round local food production--converting gas to electrons to be exported on transmission lines--or reinjecting gas back into the ground as part of enhanced oil recovery- each of these represents a billion-dollar business opportunity. Substantial progress on gas capture is in our near future--with billions of private capital being invested in mid-stream processing and gathering pipelines-- but more capacity will be needed as our gas-to-oil ratio continues to grow. And we must ensure our regulations incent--versus discourage--capital investment.
