America’s abundance of natural gas has led to our emergence as a world-class exporter of natural gas.

  • Creating U.S. jobs and growing our economy, strengthening global energy security; and
  • Reducing emissions, pollution and energy poverty around the world.

Natural gas is chilled to -260 degrees to liquefied natural gas (LNG).

  • The cold shrinks the natural gas making it more practical and affordable to transport by ship or other forms of transportation in addition to pipelines.

The United States began exporting LNG in 2016 and has steadily solidified its position as a major global energy power.

LNG exports improve our trading partners’ access to clean energy, while providing jobs and a stable supply of natural gas and revenues here in the United States.

The U.S. is now home to:

  • Several LNG export terminals in operation;
  • Numerous projects under construction; and
  • An additional set of projects that are permitted and awaiting Final Investment Decisions.
  • In addition, there are a dozen or so more projects in the queue for approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
