Gas Exports Poised for Takeoff
Peter Kelly-Detwiler, Forbes
Shale gas is the energy topic of the day. Production is increasing, but so is gas demand – for electric generation, transportation, and as an industrial feedstock. However, perhaps the most significant dynamic with the potential to drive natural gas prices up in the foreseeable future is a growing push to export LNG from the US. That particular dynamic has recently gone into hyper-drive, with numerous liquid natural gas (LNG) export requests having been filed with the US Department of Energy in the past few years.
