Exxon to Sempra Can Export Half of U.S. Home Gas Supply: Energy

Bloomberg -- Natural gas suppliers from Sempra Energy (SRE) to Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) are fighting for the first U.S. export permits after a study said selling some of the fuel to Asia will benefit the economy more than consuming it domestically.

They could win approval for projects to ship about 6 billion cubic feet a day of liquefied natural gas by 2025, according to estimates by consultants including Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. That amount of LNG would supply about half the current U.S. residential market and is worth $93 million a day at Japan’s current import price, a global benchmark.

The government-sponsored study released Dec. 5 gave a green light to exports, saying they shouldn’t delay North America’s possible energy independence in coming decades based on shale discoveries.

Look at the long run. How many US jobs, products,etc. will this energy sale cost - How much of a gain in ENERGY INDEPENDENCE would this natural gas have made - How many vehicles could this energy have powered?

Don't export. Sell domestically. Use it for transportation and off-road equipment.

“Exports may boost domestic prices by more than $1 per thousand cubic feet in coming years, NERA said. The benefits will more than offset the effect of higher prices for U.S. consumers that may be triggered by reduced domestic supply.”

Exports may indeed help the national economy but exactly how are consumers supposed to “offset the effect of higher prices” on their personal economies?

I disagree: Charity begins at home ahead of the bottom line. Lots of people accross this country are still unemployed despite denials to that effect by the administration and cheap heating energy will help make life bearable for them this winter.

Also If they ship half of all they produce they will use up that 100 yr supply in 50 yrs; Or less if the estimates are wrong.

exporting ... so long as theer are plans ( short trem of course) to convert oil and coal use to NG, and also supply homes to allow them to heat with NG... what about cars...
the NG companies will of course avpid the investmenst to do these, and just make money by exporting...
