The need to import LNG will continue due to supply bottlenecks in certain regions of the United States, such as the Northeast. Keeping LNG in America’s natural gas supply mix helps to ensure diversity of supply and energy choices, which creates competition and benefits consumers.
There are currently 8 facilities in the United States capable of receiving LNG.
Existing import terminals are located in:
- Everett, Massachusetts
- Lake Charles, Louisiana
- Offshore Boston (Excelerate Energy-Northeast Gateway)
- Freeport, Texas (Cheniere/Freeport LNG Dev.)
- Hackberry, Louisiana (Cameron LNG)
- Offshore Boston, Massachusetts (GDF SUEZ- Neptune LNG)
- Sabine Pass, Texas (Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips)
- Pascagoula, Mississippi (Gulf LNG Liquefication)
