US Declares Itself World’s Largest Exporter of Liquefied Natural Gas
Washington, March 29 – The USA has become the world’s largest exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG), but supply growth is constrained by domestic capacity, Angelina LaRose, assistant director for energy analysis at the Energy Information Administration (EIA) at the US Department of Energy, said.
“We are the largest exporter of liquefied natural gas in the world … but there are certainly capacity limitations in the country,” she said during her speech at the Wilson Research Center.
Larousse stressed that the main constraint in increasing CIS supplies is taking into account the speed of building new export infrastructure.
According to the representative of the Energy Information Administration, an important role in the growth of LNG exports in the United States is played by the possibility of providing “flexible volumes” of energy carriers and the absence of long-term contracts for the supply of gas in specific directions.
Earlier in March, the US Department of Energy indicated that Europe had become the main buyer of US LNG in 2022, and sales increased due to natural gas supply problems to the European Union and the United Kingdom after Russian pipeline exports to the region fell to a 40-year low. .
