house Bill H.R. 351

Should The U.S. Approve (Or Deny) Applications To Export Domestic Natural Gas Faster?

Argument in favor

Limiting the amount of time to assess LNG export facilities will prevent long-winded debates (like what's happening with Keystone XL), and will cement deals with potential exporters faster. More jobs, more profit from domestic oil.

Creating a deadline for approving/denying natural gas exports creates the certainty that businesses need, and it will prevent the delaying tactics that certain federal agencies have utilized in the past.

This is a link to possibly get the foundation for the problem, and look in the rear view mirror. http://www.gasstrategies.com/sites/default/files/download/outlook_for_2016_-_gas_strategies.pdf I would think that only a handful would get built no matter what the permit/approval timeframe is. Also getting consensus on whether to tie the price to Henry hub or by oil indexation may clear the picture for developers. And lastly, if the new administration does remove free trade agreements that would drive the price up for Mexican and South American exports. Possibly constricting LNG exports.

No one know the rules of the game less people play and the market lack competition and in turn prices never come down.

Argument opposed

It is unclear if this time constraint will adversely impact the DOE’s ability to conduct a sufficient review of a LNG export facility. Also, it is unclear whether more exports would adversely impact consumers in the U.S. with higher gas prices.

Keystone SHOULD be stopped. Americans have a lot at risk, and nothing to gain from this project which only benefits Canada. The energy is only intended for export, not our own use.

We should be stockpiling our natural gas and lowering our costs of living here in the US, not selling it off.

    Why risk creating this pipeline?! It is risk to our water supply that sustain human life. Besides, America has large oil reserves! This pipeline does nothing for Americans.

    Any intelligent argument about this Bill would be superfluous as it is greed-driven and greed doesn't care.

    This is not okay. The executive order to continue is horrendous. Trump stated it create jobs, lots of jobs. We do not need these jobs or more investment in a non renewable resource. Create jobs for wind and solar. Quit with the greed that's what is wanted not jobs. With his order to continue Dakota Access Pipeline he had no further comments on jobs. It was just a sign because he knows it can damage a scared side. These leaks will contaminate water for 7 million. No water, no crops, no life. Stop hurting this land and return hurting 'your' people.

    Natural Gas is not a safer or cleaner fossil fuel. It's primary pollutant, methane, is 20x more potent that carbon dioxide. It will seriously accelerate the effects of climate change.
