The Oil and Gas Industry is helping with recovery efforts in Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. President of the Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association Chris John says when Harvey hit, it knocked about 12-percent of the refining capacity for this nation offline. He says when times are tough, the oil and gas sector steps up to the plate.
