Domestic Policy,
Global Impact

Energy policy is foreign policy. The U.S. is a global leader in reducing carbon emissions and providing global energy security through LNG exports. Our policy decisions impact the entire world, so we must act on reason instead of politics.

PAGE is dedicated to ensuring our nation’s policymakers further progress the United States’ global energy and climate leadership.

Pausing LNG Export Approvals Isn’t the Solution

The Biden Administration’s new pause on liquified natural gas (LNG) export approvals will contribute to global energy instability, slow emissions progress and disrupt markets leading to increased energy costs.

What the Biden administration is Jeopardizing

Energy Security

Only four countries supply nearly two-thirds of the world’s economically recoverable gas. If we restrict our gas exports, we'll leave allies and partners vulnerable to authoritarian regimes.

Climate Progress

U.S. LNG replaces coal use and reduces emissions. Restricting LNG exports means foreign coal keeps burning.

Economic Stability

We want affordable and stable energy prices for Americans. Over the past five years, increased U.S. LNG exports did not affect energy prices at home.

Permitting Reform is a Climate Imperative

Comprehensive permitting reform legislation that supports the simultaneous buildout of natural gas and other energy infrastructure is needed to unlock the decarbonizing tools at our disposal.

Build Infrastructure

Permitting reform will streamline the development of natural gas infrastructure, such as pipelines and LNG terminals.

Export Solutions

Improved infrastructure will lead to increased LNG exports, which help replace global coal and reduce emissions.

140%

In 2022, U.S. LNG exports to Europe increased by 140% from the prior year - equating to 44% of Europe's total LNG imports.

10+

Year development cycles and incomplete projects are preventing abundant American energy from reaching consumers here and abroad.

30%

Global power sector emissions would be reduced by 30% if the world’s top 5% worst emitting power plants switched to natural gas.
