The American Petroleum Institute (API) has emphasised the importance of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Risk Management Plan.

The API believes that the rule is vital to protecting the security of industrial facilities throughout the US.

API Downstream Group Director, Frank Macchiarola, said: "This is an important step for providing regulatory certainty and supporting safety and security in the oil and natural gas industry […] Now, Congress must act to repeal this unnecessary rule, as the rule misses the mark on improving the safety and security of our nation’s energy infrastructure.”

“We look forward to working with the new administration and Congress on forward-looking energy policies that recognise America’s oil and natural gas production and refining industry as part of the solution to our nation’s economic, environmental and energy security goals.”
