Op-ed: Cove Point decision should govern all LNG export requests
14 October 2013Oil & Gas Financial Journal
There has been much discussion and debate lately about liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports. On September 11, DOE granted a petition for export of LNG for Cove Point. While the decision did not mention international trade rules, it should have. Under these rules, all LNG export requests should be granted without delay. If LNG exports were restricted, the United States would be violating its international trade obligations.
