The United States is poised to become the world’s leading liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporter by the year’s end.

The total “energy demand” (measured in TDDs) should drop by as much as 20% y-o-y, while the deviation from the norm will turn negative (-22.3%). Next week (ending Dec. 10), the weather conditions are expected… For more info go to
