House Panel Votes Out Energy Policy Reform Bill

The House Natural Resources Committee passed a controversial energy policy reform bill that would impose a number of new restrictions on oil and natural gas producers and pipelines.
The bill, HR 2337, would also repeal benefits offered to the energy industry in the 2005 Energy Policy Act.
The bill is a threat to Oklahoma oil and gas producers, said John Pilkington, president of Tulsa-based Muirfield Resources Co. and chairman of the Oklahoma Independent Producers Association.
“It is always a disappointment when incentives are done away with,” he said, referring to changes in the 2005 Energy Bill. “More rules will throttle independent operators. And, that is a shame because we are the ones producing the energy.” ?
