Comment by Wayne Christian, Texas Railroad Commissioner
March 27, 2017
The Tyler Area Energy Summit was held on March 27, 2017. It was hosted by the Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce Energy Committee, along with a number of sponsors. With a new energy-friendly presidential administration and rising petroleum prices, the oil and gas industry is set for a rebound, speakers at the 2017 Energy Summit told a packed audience.
Texas Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian noted, “We’re about to see the biggest economic boom we’ve ever seen because of the new administration. God has blessed Texas. Energy jobs are coming back to Texas.”
Ken Morgan, PhD., director of the Texas Christian University’s Energy Institute, added a global perspective. The U.S. oil and gas industry is poised to rebound, Morgan said. And, it has a good story to tell – about how inexpensive energy improves lives enormously, in multiple ways.
