Keywords: Tags  subcommittee on energy and power, energy exports, liquefied natural gas, LNG, Thorsten Schier


NEW YORK — The House Energy and Power subcommittee will hold a hearing June 18 to consider the potential for increased U.S. energy exports.

Participants will discuss "barriers, including regulatory hurdles, to exporting American energy resources such as coal and natural gas," according to the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The U.S. Energy Department, which recently granted Houston-based Freeport LNG Development LP permission to export liquefied natural gas (LNG), said it would continue considering each application to export LNG to non-FTA (free-trade association) countries on a case-by-case basis (amm.com, May 21).

The subcommittee held a hearing on the economic and geopolitical impacts of energy exports, particularly LNG, on May 7, during which participants expressed support of exports as a way to spur domestic employment and improve the United States’ standing abroad.
