ExxonMobil’s LNG project is a striking example of how energy investments create jobs and drive economic expansion. In fact, by the end of the decade, unconventional oil and gas is projected to support three million U.S. jobs and increase real GDP by 2 to 3 percent. Given the American economy grew at an almost imperceptible one-tenth of one percent in the fourth quarter, these are numbers that should make everyone sit up and take notice.We are also seeing environmental benefits from the rising use of natural gas in electricity generation. U.S. energy-related CO2 emissions have fallen to their lowest levels in nearly two decades. And, producing electricity from shale gas uses less than half the water required by coal, a tremendous sustainability benefit.
