TULSA, Okla. (AP) — An international delegation of leaders in the energy sector is in Tulsa to learn from companies operating in the region.

A representative from Romania's parliament, Silvia Vlasceanu, says his country uses coal, natural gas and hydroelectric power but is trying to settle on the most appropriate mix. The delegation visiting this week also includes leaders from Angola, China, Nigeria and Turkey.

The Tulsa World reports (http://is.gd/AMf1vp ) that members want to learn about the risks of hydraulic fracturing, how renewable energy sources can replace fossil fuels and whether energy independence is a realistic goal.

The group also visited Washington, D.C., and the rich Marcellus natural gas shale in Pennsylvania.
