About North American LNG Exports

The oldest conference to focus on the potential for LNG exports from the U.S., Canada and Mexico, North American LNG Exports has a tradition of featuring the most pioneering projects to improve market understanding and industry and government support.

  • In 2010, Cheniere Energy CEO Charif Souki opened the conference by describing his plans to add liquefaction and loadout capacity to the Sabine Pass LNG receiving terminal, transforming it into a bi-directional import/export terminal. Using its terminal use agreement (TUA) concept, Cheniere would offer import and/or export services to qualifying capacity subscribers, a revolutionary new business model in world LNG trade.
  • In 2011, speakers from Apache Corp, Dominion Resources, Oregon LNG and Cheniere Energy, among others, described the latest on their world-scale LNG export projects, ranging from Kitimat LNG pioneering plans in western British Columbia to the Panama Canal's determination to transit LNG cargos following its expansion in 2014.
  • In 2012, the conference featured smaller-scale projects, such as British Columbia's proposed floating LNG export terminal on Douglas Channel west of Kitimat and East Coast terminals aiming to supply Caribbean and Central American power markets with shuttle tankers, articulated barges, and intermodal containers of LNG. Innovative concepts to construct gas carriers capable of delivering containers of LNG to Caribbean ports were presented by such maritime industry stalwarts as Argent Marine and Maersk Line, Limited. Applied Natural Gas Fuels, Inc. described the United States' oldest operating LNG export terminal at Topock, Arizona, which has been supplying Northern Mexican industry LNG trailer loads for decades.
