Exxon, BP, Halliburton take ‘fracturing’ case to White House


The White House review of delayed federal rules for oil-and-gas “fracking” is drawing plenty of interest from energy companies and green groups.

The latest sign: Representatives from a who’s who of the biggest oil-and-gas companies — including Exxon, Shell and BP — met Feb. 21 with aides from the White House Office of Management and Budget to discuss the rules.

The newly listed record of the Feb. 21 meeting also shows participation from drilling services giant Halliburton, ConocoPhillips, big gas producer Devon Energy, and others.

The Hill’s Megan Wilson reported last Thursday on other White House meetings about controversial rules to govern the oil-and-gas development method hydraulic fracturing on public lands.
