Nov 23 (Reuters) - The American Petroleum Institute (API)
will work with state representatives to use 'every tool at its
disposal', including litigation, to oppose a Biden
administration federal fracking ban, chief executive Mike
Sommers said in an interview with Reuters on Monday.
Sommers said that while he looks forward to working with
the incoming Biden administration on energy, the API would "draw
the line" if a ban on leasing federal lands to oil and gas
companies were instituted.
"It would be incredibly detrimental on American natural
security and energy security," Sommers told Reuters.
