Oil & Gas Journal: US energy security improved for a sixth consecutive year in 2017 and neared a modern-day best, the US Chamber of Commerce’s Global Energy Institute (GEI) reported as it released its 2018 Index of US Energy Security Risk. In 2017, the most recent year of actual available data, the risk score fell to 77.5, the lowest score since 1995, and just a few points from the best-ever score of 75 in 1992, it said on Jan. 31.
“The good news continues for our nation’s energy security,” GEI Pres. Karen A. Harbert said. “Our index captures just how astounding the impact of America’s energy revolution has been in such a short amount of time.”
