Stepping up LNG exports ‘marginally positive’ for US economy

Tuesday, 16 February 2016

Expanding US LNG exports beyond 12 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) would benefit the US economy while maintaining cheap gas prices at home that give the domestic industry a competitive  edge. In disregard of stalling demand in Japan, South Korea and China, analyst project a mid-term 20 Bcf/d of external demand for US LNG and suggest that stepping up exports to 12-20 Bcf/d could reap $7-20 billion annually from 2026 to 2040 in today's prices.
