President Trump Wednesday celebrated a love-in in the Appalachian Basin.
The president delivered a 64-minute salute to shale drilling and the U.S. energy industry at the 9th annual Shale Insight conference in Pittsburgh. Kallanish Energy was in attendance.
“You are the No. 1 producer of oil and natural gas on the planet Earth, No. 1 by far,” he said. “America is a winner, a winner, a winner, a winner. We’re not being laughed at anymore.”
Shale drilling has reshaped the American economy and Americans are benefitting from lower heating bills and more jobs, Trump said.
‘I like energy people’
“I like energy people,” he said. He addressed an audience of roughly 5,200 persons at the David Lawrence Convention Center, including nearly 1,480 conference attendees and those involved in staging the conference.
The conference was staged by the Marcellus Shale Coalition, the Ohio Oil and Gas Association and the West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association.Click here to read the whole article.
