NMOGA Statement on Interior Department’s Oil and Gas Leasing Report

Nov 26, 2021


As the United States experiences a growing energy crisis, the Biden administration continues to pursue troubling policies for all American households and especially the men and women of our industry who work every day to provide our country with the oil and natural gas needed for daily life. While the White House has begged OPEC to increase its output, thousands of New Mexicans stand ready and willing to do their jobs right here, right now. Addressing climate change is and should be a priority. Policies that push production and jobs to countries with minimal environmental safeguards are little more than virtue signals that only punish safe, responsible energy production in New Mexico and other western states.
