From the Center for Liquified Natural Gas:
Washington, D.C.:110 members of the U.S. House of Representatives – Democrats and Republicans – today penned a letter urging Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy Steven Chu to approve exports of liquefied natural gas. The letter comes on the last day of the Department of Energy’s comment period for its third party-commissioned report on the macroeconomic impacts of LNG exports.
“The growth of the natural gas industry drives jobs creation, increases tax revenue, royalties and supports domestic manufacturing,” the bipartisan letter reads. “However, the continued growth of this industry is reliant on steady demand; demand which we believe can responsibly include the export of LNG. We are pleased that the NERA study commissioned by DOE supports this, indicating the export of LNG will provide economic benefits to our nation.”
