HAWAI‘IGAS CEO NAMED TO NATIONAL PETROLEUM COUNCIL

News Release from Hawai’iGas Honolulu, Hawaii – January 23, 2012

Jeffrey M. Kissel, President and CEO of HAWAI‘IGAS, was appointed by U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu to serve as a member of the National Petroleum Council (NPC) during the 2012-2013 membership term.  

The purpose of the NPC is solely to advise, inform and make recommendations to the Secretary of Energy with respect to any matters relating to oil and natural gas, or to the oil and gas industries submitted to it or approved by the Secretary. The NPC is chartered by the Secretary of Energy. It is a privately funded advisory committee originally established by the Secretary of the Interior in 1946 at the request of President Harry S. Truman.

The Council membership of approximately 200 persons is selected and appointed by the Secretary of Energy. Individual members serve without compensation as representatives of their industry or associated interests as a whole, not as representatives of their particular companies or affiliations.

“Representation on The National Petroleum Council provides Hawaii with an important forum to demonstrate how changes in the price and distribution patterns for oil and gas can impact economies in our region,” said Jeff Kissel. “It’s an honor to be of service.” Mr. Kissel is also a member of the Hawaii Business Roundtable, which addresses public policy issues in Hawaii, and serves on the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Council. 

NPC members are chosen from all segments of the oil and gas industries, all sections of the country, and from large and small companies. The Council also has members with interests outside oil or gas operations including representatives from academic, environmental, financial, research, Native American, and public interest organizations and institutions.

The NPC’s most recent work was a report to the Secretary of Energy on August 1, 2012, entitled “Advancing Technology for America’s Transportation Future”.  In it, the NPC advised the Secretary about fuels, technologies, industry practices, and government policies through 2030 for auto, truck, air, rail, and waterborne transport, with specific emphasis on potential industry and government actions that could reduce greenhouse emissions from American transportation by 50 percent by 2050.
