2013 US Congress and LNG for its NATO partners ...

When we look to the U.S. interests and certainly domestic economic benefits, we also need to look to the issue of the geopolitical implications of our being able to export. As both of you have noted, Russia has a major role as a supplier of natural gas and is a non-reliable exporter to the European countries. They use it as a political tool, punishing our European allies, especially eastern Europe, and use it to try to divide the EU and NATO countries as they put pressure on individual countries to adopt policies favourable to Russian positions.

I have a bill, H.R. 580, the Expedited LNG for American Allies Act, that would expand the ability to export LNG to our NATO partners and to Japan to allow expedited approval for that export. This is a bill that initially had been championed by Senator Lugar. It is a bipartisan and bicameral piece of legislation. I think it would be very important to give that expedited opportunity, not only increasing our markets, lowering the overall bureaucratic process for export, but also have an impact in the Pacific region with respect to Russia's export.
