Ryan Sitton Talks Texas Pipelines, The Railroad Commission’s Role [INTERVIEW]
Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton joined the Chad Hasty Show on Tuesday.
Hasty and Sitton discussed what the Railroad Commission does during a Legislative Session, the timeline of creating a pipeline and the lack of pipelines in the state.
In relation to the state's pipeline problem, Sitton said:
It's actually bigger now than it ever has been. [...] It's getting worse because our production is skyrocketing. In the Permian Basin alone we're producing close to 4 million barrels of crude oil a day; the state of Texas producing about 25 billion cubic feet of gas. That is almost 5 times as much oil and gas today as we produced just 12 years ago.
