Commissioner Christian Addresses TXOGA Energy Summit & Visits RRC Corpus District Office

AUSTIN- On Wednesday, Commissioner Wayne Christian (R - Texas) gave a keynote address at the Texas Oil and Gas Association (TXOGA) Energy Summit and visited the Railroad Commission of Texas district office in Corpus Christi.

"Texas is on the brink of the next oil and gas boom," said Christian. "It is the hard work of individuals in this room that have helped make the United States once again a world leader in energy production, fueling the Texas economy and state budget."

In his speech, Christian discussed his education and workforce initiative and emphasized the importance of training the next generation of skilled employees.

"One of the biggest threats to the next boom, isn't a lack of natural resources under the ground, but a shortage of trained employees to meet future demand - this must be addressed," continued Christian.

After his speech, Christian visited the Railroad Commission of Texas district office in Corpus Christi where he emphasized the important work done at the district level to ensure the responsible production of oil and gas.

"The Railroad Commission is not simply three commissioners making decisions down in Austin," said Christian. "It is an agency of hundreds of hardworking men and women across the state, fighting to ensure Texas remains both prosperous and environmentally safe."
