The United States and the International LNG Markets
The United States is witnessing a debate about the prospects of launching large-scale exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The debate is fuelled by forecasts of the gradual phase-out of natural gas imports, the competitiveness of North American gas compared with other regional markets, and growing demand from leading importing states. According to the author, for the US to become a major LNG-exporting country, there are some bureaucratic and infrastructure hurdles to be cleared, along with establishing the long-term impact of exports for the US economy and ensuring competitiveness vis-à-vis other producers.
