Natural Gas Companies: LNG Export Boom Still on the Launchpad- Money Morning

Anyone investing in natural gas companies is eagerly awaiting news that the liquefied natural gas (LNG) export boom is officially underway…

He added that he expects the Energy Department to conduct a “fair amount of action” regarding the applications this year.

This falls in step with the Obama Administration’s energy initiatives, which include a push for the development of “a global market for natural gas.”

This global natgas market will replace the current regional gas markets only if there are large exports of cheap natural gas from the U.S.

Japan and South Korea are the biggest importers of LNG. Japan, in the year ending in March, imported a record 87 million tons of LNG after shutting down 48 of the country’s 50 nuclear reactors.

That is more than one-third of the world’s LNG exports of 240 million tons in 2011.
