Can U.S. shale gas support domestic manufacturing expansion while increasing U.S. LNG exports? In recent months several industrial users of natural gas and some politicians in natural gas consuming states have questioned the open, free market approach to LNG trade taken by the Obama administration. They argue that unrestricted US LNG exports may hurt U.S. domestic users of natural gas, including both industry and retail consumers. These concerns are not unique to the US. In fact, the same reasons have been behind Australia’s decision to enact a regulatory measure that allows restrictions on LNG exports in case domestic market natural gas shortages emerge.
