In today’s edition of The Heartland Institute Daily Podcast, Research Fellow Isaac Orr speaks with Jessica Sena. Sena is the communications director at the Montana Petroleum Association. In this podcast, Sena gives listeners an inside look at what is happening in the Bakken region of North Dakota and Montana.
Low oil prices, and the impact they have on hydraulic fracturing, also known as “fracking” have been a major story in media outlets across the United States. Two years ago, these same outlets were covering the rapid growth and increase in oil and natural gas production. Additionally, Sena explains how state legislators avoid imposing costly regulations on the oil and gas industry by crafting science-based standards and becoming as informed as possible on the subject of oil and gas production.
