Clean Energy Insider Explores the Biden Administration’s LNG Export Announcement 

In the latest edition of Clean Energy Insider, CRES President Heather Reams breaks down why the Biden Administration’s de facto ban on U.S. LNG exports is harmful for both the economy and the environment.  

We know U.S. LNG is among the cleanest in the world, and by cutting off exports to our allies, the Biden Administration is forcing countries around the world who currently rely on American LNG to look to dirtier sources of natural gas while lining the pockets of hostile nations. Our friends abroad – like the European Union – will be forced to turn to Russian natural gas, which, when exported to Europe, has a 41 percent higher emissions profile than U.S. LNG exported to the same location. 

I joined Congressional Western Caucus Chairman Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.), Rep. August Pfluger (R-Texas) and Rep. Buddy Carter (R-Ga.) at a Western Caucus Foundation briefing to discuss the importance of American LNG. The briefing came on the heels of the House passage of Rep. Pfluger’s Unlocking Our Domestic LNG Potential Act by a bipartisan vote. CRES supports the legislation because we recognize it will empower the United States to do what we do best: produce clean, affordable and reliable energy while reducing global emissions.
