"Moniz: Oil Industry Hasn't Made Case for Crude-Oil Export"

"HOUSTON – Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said Wednesday that oil companies have not done a good job explaining why they believe heavy federal restrictions on crude-oil exports should be lifted.

"I don't think industry has done a good job clearly and concisely stating the case," Moniz said at a major energy conference here.

He weighed in as industry officials, including major oil companies such as Exxon and Chevron, are pressing to lift the near-ban on crude-oil exports imposed in the wake of the 1970s Arab oil embargo."
