During the August congressional recess, U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin traveled his district visiting with several energy-related firms including workers installing a $1 billion pipeline in Oklahoma.
In the photo above, he was shown talking with workers at Vulcan Materials in the Johnston County town of Mill Creek.
“Great talking with employees and touring Vulcan Materials in Mill Creek. Our infrastructure is crumbling and desperately needs to be updated. Investing in infrastructure also means supporting local businesses and jobs. It’s a win-win for our communities,” stated the congressman in an email newsletter.
He also spoke to workers at the Midship pipeline in Bryan County. Houston’s Cheniere Energy began construction of the line earlier this year. The project is designed to carry natural gas out of the STACK play at Kingfisher to connecting hubs in southern Oklahoma.
“Oklahoma is a leader in energy resources. In 2017, Oklahoma was the 6th largest state in crude oil production, 4th largest state in natural gas production and 2nd in wind generation. This “all of the above” approach has resulted in some of the lowest energy prices in the country for consumers. As co-chair of the House Energy Action Team, we are taking this approach to a national level and I was glad to share that with Midship Pipeline in Bryan County,” stated Rep. Mullin.
Rep. Mullin also paid a visit to the Tulsa Technology Industry Training Center.
“(It) helps people get the career and technical education they need to jumpstart their career and find a job in the service industry,” said the congressman.
