The American Chemistry Council (ACC) and its members are united in support of a comprehensive policy agenda that energizes economic growth and job creation in the U.S. and are ready to help drive it. The competitive advantage of American chemical manufacturing, largely due to shale gas, provides a unique opportunity to drive a broader expansion of manufacturing in the U.S. Maximizing this opportunity will require the development and implementation of a world-leading, pro-competitive policy, and regulatory environment: on energy, infrastructure, tax, and trade.

The issue of environmental sustainability is a major concern for governments and players from the oil and gas industry worldwide. The negative impacts as a result of activities carried out by oil and gas companies have been a major tool not only for the livelihood and health of people but more so to the environment, such as pollution. The risk of environmental pollution, hazards and severity can be and will be reduced with the use of machine learning and deep learning in the years to come. There has been an amazing application in chemical engineering, process safety, process control tuning, advanced dynamic and process optimization. We can see that the Oil and Gas industry when we talk about software especially machine learning solutions didn’t have any innovation in the last 15 years.
