Pro energy development agencies are applauding the Trump victory in the presidential race. Western Energy Alliance was among the first to congratulate President-elect Trump. “Western Energy Alliance is overjoyed that we will not be experiencing a third term of the Obama Administration,” shares Alliance President Tim Wigley. “American producers have been deluged by regulatory agencies bent on making it more difficult to produce American energy even as President Obama worked so hard to help Iranian producers. President-elect Trump understands that overregulation is killing American opportunity, and his plans to spur development of domestic shale oil and natural gas will create hundreds of thousands of blue-collar jobs while delivering widespread prosperity and low energy prices for consumers.” Those supporting energy development are hopeful the new administration will roll back on regulations and move forward on pipelines and energy projects.
