Patten & Associates’ extensive network of relationships on Capitol Hill allows us to provide a direct voice for the energy and natural resource industry. The current political environment can be difficult to navigate with increasingly greater regulatory and tax constraints placed on businesses.
However, with domestic production of energy expected to continue to rise, we can help develop and direct legislative, regulatory and public policy initiatives that will help our clients’ businesses grow and overcome obstacles.
We can effectively exert pressure on targeted Members of Congress and relevant legislative Committees to ensure that your strategic goals receive a full and fair hearing. In addition, we will engage in public policy initiatives that will highlight the effectiveness of domestic oil and natural resource production and the associated benefits.
We will work with federal agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, Department of Energy (DOE), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the U.S. Energy Information Administration to keep you apprised of any changes in regulatory policy and subsequently offer creative strategies to help your business achieve its operational goals.
Our team has an in-depth understanding of the associated tax issues affecting oil and natural gas production. We will work with your business to see that your interests are protected at the highest levels of government.
Our partners will provide expert counsel on how legislative and regulatory initiatives can promote your objectives in the areas of energy infrastructure, transportation and cyber-security. We will work with the relevant agencies and appropriate Members of Congress to advance your company goals.
