Obama Could End Crude Export Ban By Executive Order, Hamm Says
President Barack Obama could authorize crude oil exports with an executive order, according to Harold Hamm, founder and CEO of Continental Resources Inc. (NYSE: CLR), Bloomberg reported Feb. 27. Export restrictions, a boon to refiners, hurt oil producers, Hamm said Feb. 27 in an interview on CNBC. The export ban was an “enforcement tool of price control back in the ’70s,” Hamm said. “It could be done away with with an executive order. I would expect the president to do that.”
