Southwestern Energy Applauds Fracking Disclosure Law
Steve Mueller, President and Chief Executive Officer of Southwestern Energy issued a statement congratulating Texas Governor 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.
