NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Breaking Free, a new documentary about the drive toward American energy independence produced by Chris Faulkner, CEO of Breitling Energy Corporation (OTC:BECC), premiered last night at a private screening before more than 100 oil and gas executives attending New York Energy Week.
Documentary producer Faulkner is a featured speaker and panelist at New York Energy Week, presenting the closing remarks Thursday evening, June 19. Author of The Fracking Truth, Faulkner is an outspoken industry advocate and champion of the technologies and processes that have unlocked America’s extraordinary energy boom, including the controversial practice of hydraulic fracturing (fracking).
“Industry hasn’t done a good job telling the important story of the shale oil and gas renaissance that’s fueling our economic comeback, so we are very proud to,” noted Faulkner. “We wanted to help tell the whole story and show folks how key this shale boom has been here and will be all across the globe, so they can judge based on all the facts rather than only the scary stories that play so well on the evening news.”
