Two months after Sempra Energy announced the first production of LNG from the jointly-owned Cameron LNG facility, the company has joined a panel of experts in a special hearing with the US Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
Dennis Arriola, executive vice president and group president for Sempra Energy, addressed the important role of US LNG in evolving global markets.
“The US is well positioned to be the global leader in energy exports,” said Arriola. “LNG exports provide a path to a cleaner environment worldwide, a reduction in our trade deficit with other countries, an opportunity to build stronger international relationships, all while creating jobs in the US and improving our domestic economy.”
Arriola’s testimony focused on US LNG supply, the impact to the US economy, how LNG exports can reduce trade deficits and benefit foreign relations, and the environmental benefits of LNG.
“The role of LNG exports in the US’s global energy leadership is larger than any of us can imagine. Energy is focused on helping our country realise its full energy potential by being a leader in the LNG export market,” concluded Arriola.
