More from Rockefeller Mansion Notes: Energy Secretary Says Energy Boom is “the problem”

More from GAO Board Member Chris Horner’s piece in Real Clear Energy:

The tension is further exposed in New Mexico’s Cabinet Secretary for Energy, Minerals, & Natural Resources Department, diagnosing the “problem,” which is the state’s booming oil & gas production.

Per the notes, Sarah Cottrell Propst bemoans the “problem is oil production in Permian [is] 1.5b/month in commerce, 400% ↑ in production.” That seems to be a rather odd position for an Energy Secretary to take, privately or not.

Hat-tip, Rocky Mountain Institute’s Carla Frisch as recorder, New Mexico Secretary for the Department of Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Propst as confessor.
