From the Center for Liquified Natural Gas last Thursday:
Washington, D.C.: Today the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy and Power is holding a forum on the “Geopolitical Implications and Mutual Benefits of U.S. LNG Exports,” on which Center for Liquefied Natural Gas (CLNG) President Bill Cooper released the following statement:
“The need for today’s forum shows how dramatically the U.S. energy landscape has changed. Thanks to technological advances we can now use our wealth of energy resources to assist our trading partners, lower global greenhouse emissions and promote much-needed economic growth here at home. Today’s testimony underscores the need for the U.S. Department of Energy to act now and process the remaining LNG exports applications. We have an abundance of natural gas and a robust regulatory process already in place to govern the export process, but we also have a unique window of opportunity in which to enter the export market that won’t last forever.”
The forum will feature subcommittee members and representatives from the Czech Republic, Haiti, Hungary, India, Japan, Lithuania, Puerto Rico, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand. Participants will discuss the potential role of the United States in the global natural gas market and the fuel needs of trading partners abroad.
