This is the July 11, 2019 hearing on "Evolving Global Natural Gas Markets, the Increasingly Important Role of U.S. Liquefied Natural Gas, and the Competitive Outlook," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Lisa Murkowski: "We are meeting this morning to examine the evolving global natural gas markets, the increasingly important role of U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) as well as the competitive outlook for LNG. American natural gas production has literally changed the game. We say that a lot around here about that, but it has been a game changer. Our production has soared to levels that many never even thought possible, and that was just about a decade ago. This, in turn, is boosting our economy as well as our national security. It is providing a long-term, low-cost, low-emission source of energy for our manufacturers and residential consumers alike, and we have such a massive resource base that we can send substantial volumes abroad. We are now leading the world in natural gas production. Hopefully soon we will also lead in exports. Global demand for LNG, we know, is increasing. More U.S. LNG export facilities are coming online and more of our friends and allies around the world are building import facilities." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Steven E. Winberg, Dennis V. Arriola, Melanie Hart, and Nikos Tsafos.
