WASHINGTON, D.C. –  AFPM President and CEO Chet Thompson commented:

“We applaud President Trump’s action to expedite the review and approval of the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines. Both projects are good for the country, received the required environmental approvals, and never should have been delayed.

  “Today marks an important step toward improving our nation’s infrastructure while signifying that this administration is serious about developing a rational energy plan that understands the important role of oil and natural gas to our country’s prosperity.”
