Client Testimonials

“The Energy Council is there to bridge the informational gap between the industry and those who are closely impacted by the industry—which is everyone.  We all benefit from the resources and commodities that come from oil and gas; it’s not just heating our homes and driving our cars, it’s your heart valve, it’s the plastic in your eyeglasses, it’s the machines, resources, commodities that make life-saving surgeries possible in hospitals everywhere—whether or not the sun shines or the wind blows. The Energy Council is there to help defend the freedom that oil and gas give to people everywhere, whatever their status, politics, or understanding of the industry.”
