Energy Department approves expanded LNG exports

There are 3 comments on the www.washingtonpost.com story from May 17, 2013, titled Energy Department approves expanded LNG exports. In it, www.washingtonpost.com reports that:

The Energy Department gave a terminal near Freeport, Tex., permission Friday to ship liquefied natural gas to Japan, providing a new outlet for rising U.S. production of shale gas despite qualms of environmentalists and many domestic manufacturers.

The permit marks another step in the sudden reversal of fortune in the natural gas business. Less than five years ago, anticipating a worsening shortfall in domestic supplies of natural gas, the Freeport terminal on Quintana Island began operations as an import facility.

The glut in natural gas has producers capping wells and curtailing fracking. Today's approval to ship LNG overseas is a godsend to the industry to prop prices domestically.
