  • America’s Energy Advantage, a group of manufacturers and municipal gas distributors, sent a letter to U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Moniz urging DOE to stop approving applications to export LNG to nations without a Free Trade Agreement with the United States. The letter expresses concerns that approval of additional LNG export volumes will jeopardize the manufacturing renaissance in the United States that has resulted from low domestic gas prices and questions why DOE continues to rely on “obsolete” 2011 data in considering whether to approve additional exports.
