API Map of LNG Sites Critical to U.S. Export Goals
API has launched a new web-based map tracking liquefied natural gas (LNG) export projects, including those waiting for approval from the federal government. Approval of the multi-billion dollar export terminals could create thousands of American jobs, strengthen the U.S. geopolitical position, reduce global emissions, and help the Obama administration to meet its promise to double American exports.
The online API LNG export map displays a summary of investments, exports, and jobs associated with each application to sell LNG to countries that do not have free trade agreements with the United States. Terminals are listed in the order that the DOE expects to review the projects, along with how long each has waited for approval. Also listed are the four U.S. export sites approved since 2011, as well as 63 competing sites planned or under construction in foreign nations.
