FROM FRACKING TO THE FERC TO FINLAND: AN OVERVIEW OF REGULATORY AND MARKET FACTORS IMPACTING THE EXPORT OF LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS
Article Written by: Jennifer L. Beresky
For the last 60 years, the United States has been a natural gas importer, trading predominately with neighboring countries. A recent increase in natural gas exports creates an opportunity for growth in the natural gas production industry in the Appalachian Basin, directly related to increased liquefied natural gas exports (LNG). For the first time in U.S. history, the majority of natural gas production is not occurring in Texas or Louisiana, but is instead shifting to the Marcellus and Utica shale states of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. Steady production in this areas means that the Appalachian Basin directly benefit from increases in LNG exports.
