LMOGA President Chris John on President Obama’s Visit to New Orleans

“President Obama's visit to New Orleans marks an important turning point in our nation's energy future. Fully realizing the potential of exporting products powered and supplied by America's oil and gas industry is a positive step in bolstering the economy. Louisiana stands ready to lead the effort, whether through LNG exports, crude exports, port infrastructure, or simply providing the fuel for the exportation of countless products globally. And with a sound public and regulatory policy from our nation’s decision makers, we can truly define America as a global energy leader.”
