Port of Corpus Christi poised to export LNG
The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a hearing on “The Role of U.S. LNG in Meeting European Energy Demand,” which examined the role of American natural gas in supporting the energy security of US Eastern European allies. At the close of the hearing, Sean Strawbridge, Chief Executive Officer of the Port of Corpus Christi, released the following statement:
“As a gateway to the United States’ global energy trade, the Port of Corpus Christi applauds Committee Chairman Lisa Murkowski for convening this important discussion. Now, more than ever, it is crucial that the United States use its abundant energy resources to supports its friends and allies abroad. Ensuring Eastern Europe, particularly places like Poland, has access to reliable and affordable fuel will go a long way in protecting geopolitical stability and facilitating further energy security.”
