Last month the American Petroleum Institute published its outlook for US energy industry growth in coming years in a study authored by IHS Global and entitled Oil & Natural Gas Transportation & Storage Infrastructure: Status, Trends, & Economic Benefits.

The study concludes, among other things, that 

The economic impact analysis was generated based on average annual investment levels over the 2014-2025 forecast horizon. 

 
IHS anticipates that, under the base case scenario, the infrastructure investment will lead to 
average annual economic contributions over the 2014 to 2025 period of: 
 Support for almost 900,000 jobs; 
 Contribution to US GDP of $94 billion; 
 Labor Income of $59 billion; 
 Government Revenues in excess of $21 billion. 
Under the high production scenario these contributions will increase to: 
 Support for almost 1,147,000 jobs; 
 Contribution to US GDP of $120 billion; 
 Labor Income of $75 billion; 
 Government Revenues in excess of $27 billion.
