House Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing on Energy Opportunities in North America


The House Foreign Affairs Committee’s Subcommittee Hearing will hold a hearing entitled “Energy Opportunities in North America.”

Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Chairman, on the hearing: “U.S. energy policy toward Canada and Mexico is very important to the American people. While we already have strong energy partnerships with our neighbors, the North American energy market has huge potential to create more American jobs, lower domestic energy prices, and achieve greater energy independence and security.

North America makes up almost 30 percent of the world’s natural gas production, our neighbors are major buyers of petroleum products refined in our country, and opportunities from the Canadian oil sands and Mexico’s energy reforms provide increasing ways to expand North American energy collaboration. This hearing will examine these issues and ways to increase U.S. energy cooperation with Canada and Mexico in the days ahead.”

Invited Witnesses Include:
**Ms. Sarah Ladislaw, Director and Senior Fellow, Energy and National Security Program, Center for Strategic and International Studies
**Mr. Stephen Comstock, Director, Tax and Accounting Policy Department, American Petroleum Institute
**Duncan Wood, Ph.D., Director, Mexico Institute, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
