Natural Gas Exports
Energy Member Brian Heslin and Litigation Counsel Tonya Mercer were published in The American Oil & Gas Reporter in November. The article, "Natural Gas Exports," published as the November 2014 Exclusive Story. It discusses the viability of liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports as a means for the United States to secure its position in the global energy market.
"The rich supply of accessible domestic natural gas has sparked a growing consensus that liquefied natural gas exports represent an opportunity for the United States to become a major player in the global energy sector. Over the past two years, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission have moved more expeditiously to process applications to export LNG to countries that do not have a Free Trade Agreement with the United States–or non-FTA countries."
