An American Petroleum Institute (API) official called for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to approve U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports 'without delay' Thursday.

By serving international markets through LNG exports, the United States can create economic growth at home through the creation of jobs in the oil and gas industry and boosting tax revenues that could help the nation's trade deficit, API Chief Economist John Felmy told reporters in a conference call.

Given that President Obama has called on the United States to double its export output in an effort to create jobs, reducing or restricting energy exports does not make sense, said Felmy, who commented that restricting U.S. LNG exports would be a ”backward move” that could violate international trade laws.

All well and good NHLiveFree but too many want to shut down oil and gas production altogether.

Thats right export as much as possible so our prices here in the US will go up. Big oil and gas don't have enough money.

Of course the industry shills and investors here love "free" and "global" markets when it creates higher prices, but United States crude and natural gas reserves are a USA natural resource and should remain for use exclusively in the USA. It is not a "global" resource, keep it here.

What is good for the Oil and Gas industries is certainly good for all of us. At least that's the story their API PR would have us all believe!

so we were told to conserve to make america stronger and energy independent.

when we did, we are now told to export the excess (that by the way did nothing to lower energy prices due to a new stupid energy policy) to create jobs and more tax revenues for idiotic state and federal spenders?

would love 2 see EIA add coal imports and exports to their weekly tallies.

US exports just increase prices for Americans.

Maine has ben trying to get permits to build LNG ports for several years. Every time they are blocked by the " Greens", or the wealthy who own most of Maine's coast.

Expecting government to do things without delay is hopeless. Well except for tax increases, they'll jump right on that!

We definately need the economic growth in the US - but would the resulting higher LNG prices at home hurt us just as much?

If the LNG exports can be done without dramatically increasing prices in the US, it should be done.

The flip-side to exporting LNG is that it will become more expensive domestically, since our supply won't change, but demand will increase.

Don't count on the DOE to do the right thing. At least not under this clown's watch.
