CLARKSBURG — Officials in the oil and gas industry are applauding President Donald Trump’s intention to nominate two candidates to fill vacancies on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

“The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission needs a quorum in order to approve any pending or future projects,” said Frank Mack, communications project manager for Dominion Energy. “So we welcome any news that would get us to that point.”

There is a destructive movement to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

“Stop digging. No exploration for new fossil fuels, no expansion of fossil fuel projects. We need to keep fossil fuels in the ground,” members of the anti-fossil fuel movement say.

Two prime examples of the success of this movement were the blockage of the Keystone and Dakota pipelines.
