In response to President Obama’s State of the Union address, Center for Liquefied Natural Gas (CLNG) President Bill Cooper released the following statement:
“President Obama’s remarks about America’s growing energy prospects are correct. Natural gas development has transformed this country.
“However, for the United States to reach its full energy potential, including the creation of thousands of jobs, billions of dollars in GDP growth and greater revenues for state and local governments, the administration must allow LNG exports to move forward.
“Expediting the permitting process at the Department of Energy will provide Americans the full benefit of our energy abundance.
“I urge the President to empower Secretary Moniz to quickly process these applications to allow American projects to compete in the global LNG marketplace.”
