United States - West, East & Gulf Coasts
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
While the United States is predominately an LNG importer, one existing LNG export, or liquefaction, terminal is located in Kenai, Alaska. LNG from this facility is predominantly being exported to Japan. Nine additional LNG liquefaction projects have been proposed throughout the United States.
There are eleven existing regasification, or import, LNG terminals in the United States. These facilities are located in Pascagoula, Massachusetts; Hackberry, Louisiana; Lake Charles, Louisiana; Sabine Pass, Texas; Freeport, Texas; Everett, Massachusetts; Cove Point, Maryland; and Elba Island, Georgia. LNG is imported to these facilities from Trinidad and Tobago, Algeria, Egypt, Malaysia, Nigeria, Qatar and Oman.
