Natural gas: exporting our "energy independence"

Just to give you an idea of how deep the bull$hit is surrounding natural gas, they plan to export our energy independence and national security. That way they get relief from the gas bubble and drive those low prices back up.

Companies requesting blanket and/or long-term permits to export liquid natural gas (LNG). It’s a long list.

Chesapeake Energy wants to export LNG

Chinese stake out Chesapeake

Chesapeake CEO outlines “holy grail” for natural gas:

He said the U.S. by then could have in place an infrastructure for conversion of natural gas to liquid form, potentially for use as a motor fuel, and for export to foreign countries as liquefied natural gas (LNG).

With natural gas glut, firms bank on exporting

Freeport/Macquarie to Build LNG Export Terminal in Texas

Project aims to liquefy U.S. natural gas

If Freeport and Macquarie are able to sign up customers committed to buying the LNG for up to 20 years, they will use those commitments to fund the project through U.S. debt markets

Glut prompts project to chill natural gas for export

…ship some of that LNG back overseas because of overproduction of the fuel in the U.S

Okay, there is a lot more but I’m tired of this. Just think of all the drilling and fracking and pipelines and compressor stations and collection facilities and processing plants and etc., it will take to support all that exportation of our energy independence.

    YAY! America can become a third world gas hole for the sake of the rest of the world. With globalization E'rybody wiiiins

    Please explain why Texas is buying electricity from Mexico, while we have power plants sitting idle because they can not get any natural gas because it is rationed, all the while, we are sending our reserves out of the country. Energy independence from foreign sources, NOT! It all goes to the highest bidder, while we get the steamy pile of propaganda BS and rolling blackouts, because the giant energy producing Texas bends over to big energy while screwing their fellow Texans!

    I am generally against exporting our natural resources–especially energy! If LNG is to be exported there should be a great big 'ole EXPORT TAX placed on this exported resource! This tax will provide a proper disinsentive for such activity. Further, we, the peasants will pay the pollution penality because we are living in the gas patch in Texas! Let's get the TAX AX going!
