Oil & Gas Journal reported: The US gas market is undergoing a structural shift that threatens to shake the established global LNG order.

Short term, the abundant supply has weighed heavily on Henry Hub prices, and the incremental export demand has done little to change this. And medium-term prospects for significant LNG export demand come on the heels of a 5-year expansion in domestic natural gas generation capacity. This article details how the coming combination of domestic and export demand will inject much needed bullishness into the market. For more on this story visit or click https://
