On Sept. 9, the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce presented the results of an independent impact study on the area’s energy sector to its board of directors, Partners for Growth steering committee and energy committee. The Economic Impact of the Energy Sector and Petroleum Tank Storage Industry on Mobile County was conducted by Keivan Deravi PhD and Barbara Buchanan, both of Auburn University at Montgomery.
The study focused on area refineries, coal, import and exports at the Port of Mobile and petroleum tank storage. Key factors analyzed were employment, earnings and demand.
The Mobile Area Chamber’s economic development efforts target six “major” industries. They are aerospace, healthcare/biomedical, manufacturing, oil and gas exploration, maritime and transportation/distribution. Nearly all of these industry clusters rely heavily on the availability of affordable and abundant energy options.
