Steve Mueller, President and Chief Executive Officer of Southwestern Energy Company (NYSE: SWN) issued a statement today congratulating
Rick Perry's decision to sign a hydraulic fracturing disclosure bill into law and expressing appreciation to Representative
Jim Keffer and Senator
Jane Nelson for their efforts to get this landmark legislation passed.
"Southwestern Energy Company strongly supports Governor Perry's decision to require the public disclosure of all the chemicals contained in hydraulic fracturing fluids. Developing America's shale gas resources is important for meeting our country's growing energy needs, but so is transparency in how we access these resources. It is essential that we do everything reasonably possible to ensure public trust and acceptance of hydraulic fracturing operations. Without the tireless leadership of Representative Keffer and the strong support of Senator Nelson, this historic legislation would not have become law," stated Mueller.
Southwestern Energy Company is an integrated company whose wholly-owned subsidiaries are engaged in oil and gas exploration and production, natural gas gathering and marketing. Additional information on the company can be found on the Internet at
