This document is the February 27, 2018 hearing titled "Liquefied Natural Gas and U.S. Geopolitics" before the House Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources of the Committee on Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Paul A. Gosar: "The advent of the Shale Revolution in America has revolutionized the way we extract valuable hydrocarbons, leading to lower energy prices and an infusion into the American economy with billions in revenues. The combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracking technologies has also allowed the United States to transition from a position of energy insecurity to energy dominance. In recent years, the production of natural gas has allowed the United States to become an undeniable force within the global energy market.Indeed, the United States has become the world's largest producer of natural gas since 2009. And this production must continue if we are to provide our allies with reliable energy, while maintaining jobs and increasing revenues from production here at home." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Paul A. Gosar, Alan S. Lowenthal, Peter B. Doran, Meg Gentle, David Livingston, and Christopher Smith.
