LNG

The US emphasized to its LNG importers that the pause on new LNG export project approvals does not threaten LNG supplies to customers, US Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Resources Geoffrey Pyatt said.

  • “I’ve found that our allies who raise these issues with me tend to be quickly reassured when you explain to them what this is — which is a pause,” Pyatt said.
  • “There is no reason for concern among our allies, whether they be in Asia, like Japan, or in Europe,” Pyatt said. “We will see where the pause proceeds as a result of the domestic reviews.”
