Increasing demand for U.S. LNG

Capito, colleagues introduce legislation to expedite U.S. natural gas exports < From US Sen. Shelley Moore Capito.

U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), along with Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), and John Kennedy (R-La.), recently reintroduced the Natural Gas Export Expansion Act. The legislation would expedite the federal approval process for exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) and increase free trade, particularly as European countries are rapidly seeking new sources of clean, reliable energy. In addition to creating and supporting thousands of domestic jobs, this legislation would help to fortify our nation’s energy security, reduce emissions at home and abroad, and strengthen America’s strategic and economic relationship with our allies. “Since first introducing this legislation in 2021, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has only further highlighted the urgency for the U.S. to expedite the permitting process for the exportation of natural gas to our allies. This legislation would not only advance West Virginia’s energy sector and create many new jobs, but it would also ensure that our allies do not have to rely on rogue nations for their energy needs,” Senator Capito said.

Energy Department exploring clean natural gas designation. Politico.

The Energy Department is exploring a plan to offer a government endorsement for natural gas that meets a minimum standard for cleanliness — a move aimed at helping U.S. gas producers maintain sales even as nations ratchet down fossil fuels dependency to address climate change, two industry sources familiar with the plan said. A number of companies have sprung up to certify the carbon footprint of natural gas collected in Texas, New Mexico and other places, but there is no federal government program verifying the legitimacy of these private sector efforts. The DOE effort would set a minimum standard that has to be met to help build confidence in the marketplace, said one industry executive briefed on the plan. DOE has invited industry and environmental groups to send representatives to a roundtable the agency plans on hosting at CERAWeek, one of the biggest U.S. energy conferences, scheduled for Houston next month, the executive said.
