US LNG Projects Goes Ahead as Long-term Buyers Line Up

Mounting concerns over energy security are driving global LNG buyers to
sign long-term supply contracts—revitalizing the outlook for US LNG

highest bidders no matter where they lived on the globe. This made it
almost certain that as U.S. prices rose to match world prices, U.S.
consumers would feel the pain. And, since energy prices affect everyone
