Chet Thompson, President and CEO of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, today issued the below statement on the association’s ongoing work:

“We thank Shell for their longstanding collaboration with AFPM and wish them all the best in the future. AFPM will continue to foster collaboration among our nearly 300 members on important topics like safety and environmental protection. We will also continue working on behalf of the refining and petrochemical industries to advance policies that ensure reliable and affordable access to fuels and petrochemicals, while being responsible stewards of the environment.

“AFPM works on myriad issues for our membership. Like any family, we aren’t always fully aligned on every policy, but we always strive to reach consensus positions on policies that are in the best interest of our membership and the communities and consumers that rely on us.”
