WASHINGTON, October 11, 2019—API today announced that Dustin Meyer, who previously served as API’s policy advisor on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and other global issues, has been tapped to lead API’s Market Development group, which focuses on sustaining and growing demand for U.S. natural gas resources in America and around the world.

“We’re excited to have Dustin continue to bring his forward-looking insights on the critical energy issues affecting our membership and all Americans, and are always pleased to have the opportunity to elevate talent within our organization,” said API President and CEO Mike Sommers.

“There has never been a more exciting time to be working on natural gas issues. With the U.S. set to become the world’s largest LNG exporter, we are now seeing more and more of the economic and environmental benefits US natural gas provides not only at home but abroad,” said Meyer. “I’m thrilled to be leading API’s Market Development group during this pivotal period of growth for the U.S. natural gas industry.”

Meyer began his career working with the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) after completing his Bachelor’s degree at Princeton University. He received his Master’s of Environmental Management from Yale University and continued his career with IHS Energy as a senior energy analyst. He then went to work with Energy Ventures Analysis as a lead analyst of global LNG and renewable energy before joining API.
