Gupta details the U.S. policy changes he says are needed to re-energize domestic natural gas production. Gupta states: “The [natural gas] prices are very depressed. I’d like to see an energy policy promoting the use of natural gas in our auto or transportation industries, and for export so we can start using it. At the same time, improve the price, drill more and reduce dependency on foreign oil.” Learn how the company also plans to expand in challenging markets like the Middle East. “We have been really successful in Asia. We hope to break into the Middle Eastern markets, hopefully, within a year,” says Gupta.
