ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.-In this episode of Eye on New Mexico, Nathan O'Neal sits down with the CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, Mike Sommers to discuss issues surrounding one of New Mexico's most lucrative sectors in its economy—the oil and gas industry.

New Mexico is currently the 3rd largest producer of oil in the United States. Industry officials reported that New Mexico produced a record 250 million barrels of oil in 2018. 

As the oil industry continues to grow, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham continues her efforts to protect New Mexico's environment. Gov. Lujan Grisham attended an environmental summit last month in Santa Fe to discuss solutions to improve the state's air quality.
