Energy Opportunities in South America
Chairman Duncan on the hearing: “The issue of energy in the region is a huge opportunity for advancing U.S. interests, creating jobs, and realizing economic growth. Stronger energy security would give the U.S. and our neighbors greater freedom and lessen our dependency on countries in the Middle East for natural resources. Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru all have significant oil or natural gas production. Chile also hosts the world’s second-largest lithium reserves. These abundant resources coupled with recent regulatory reforms have created an opening for greater U.S. energy collaboration with countries in South America. This hearing will focus on ways our country can increase our energy engagement to benefit U.S. and regional interests.”
