API’s Stephanie Meadows testifies at the DRBC hearing asking the DRBC to base their decisions on hydraulic fracturing on sound science not accusations.
Good evening DRBC Commissioners and Staff.
My name is Stephanie Meadows. I am a Manager in the Upstream Department of the American Petroleum Institute. I have been working on hydraulic fracturing issues for API since 2008.
Let me start out by making something clear – Our top priority is to provide energy in a safe, technologically sound way with the least possible impact on the environment. Our members take their responsibility to the surrounding communities seriously and we work with federal and state agencies to develop design standards, recommended practices, and guidance that will improve operational integrity and regulatory processes across the board.
