The Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and Power hosted a forum entitled “Geopolitical Implications and Mutual Benefits of U.S. LNG Exports.” Representatives from several foreign countries and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico participated in the forum, providing an opportunity for members to hear a broad range of international perspectives on U.S. LNG exports, the current policies governing these exports, and the potential impacts increasing exports would have on global markets.
“Innovative technological advancements have dramatically changed the energy landscape of America, and this new energy reality has game-changing potential both domestically and abroad,” said full committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI). “Such a summit with our global friends would have been unthinkable just a few short years ago. Our natural gas boom is creating jobs and revitalizing manufacturing here at home, but it also offers an opportunity for us to help our allies and trading partners fuel their economy and reduce the world's reliance on unstable regions of the world.”
