Interview Highlights:

“Do you want to see the shard?” It’s a drillship. They’re drilling the wells for this ship. So this ship is not drilling.

“And they operate 24 hours a day. Twelve-hour shifts. Two 12-hour shifts.

“It’s really high tech. The pay is really good if you work on a rig if you’re serving industry, but also generates billions of dollars for the federal treasury.

“A facility like this, and others like this, you could supply all of America’s oil and natural gas needs and export to some of our friends around the world. We should see more members of Congress from both sides of the aisle who want to come and see this Frankly, we should see people from the Biden administration who want to come here because a lot of the things they say against American energy just aren’t not true.

“You know, the biggest concern about what the Biden administration is doing is it’s making it harder for America to be energy independent years from now, which means we’re going to be more dependent on countries foreigners for our energy supply. It’s bad for America.
