Offshore Resources

America needs energy from all sources — including renewable.  But no matter how fast alternative sources of energy are adopted, we know that America will rely mostly on oil and gas for many decades to come.

To meet our rising energy demand we need to further develop the vast resources right here in North America.  That will provide us with the stable, reliable energy we need — while improving the nation’s economy, creating new jobs, generating government revenue and increasing our energy security. All of this can be accomplished while being subject to the most stringent safety and environmental standards in the world.  

But just how much untapped energy lies off our shores?

There is an estimated 3.8 billion barrels of oil and 37 trillion cubic feet of natural gas that could be available by opening up the Atlantic coastline to exploration. 

Unfortunately, obstacles put in place by our policymakers are preventing us from doing so.

Learn more about these obstacles, why it’s vital to start developing them now, and how technology allows us to explore and develop them safely.

What happened to the possibility of drilling for oil off the East Coast? Was it Virginia, or the Carolinas that were talking doing it?

You really think this president and this Congress are going to allow us to drill off America's shores? Forget it. Thanks for fighting the good fight -- but excuse me if I'm cynical about the politicians in DC doing the right thing.
