Oil, Natural Gas Lobby Groups to Merge

Posted November 19, 2015 at 6:59am

Fuel Fix reports that “the American Petroleum Institute and America’s Natural Gas Alliance, two of the largest energy lobbying groups, said Wednesday they plan to join into a single voice promoting the industry.”  

“The combined organization will continue under the American Petroleum Institute name as of Jan. 1. It will speak for an industry that has been rocked by low commodity prices and faces resistance to use of fossil fuels because of climate change concerns, even as energy demand grows around the world.”  

“America’s Natural Gas Alliance and the American Petroleum Institute have similar agendas, although the alliance focuses mostly on natural gas. It will continue that advocacy under a newly created Market Development Group led by ANGA President Marty Durbin.”
