LNG Insider Shares His List of Which Export Projects Will Get Built

Yesterday MDN told you about one of the five potential LNG (liquefied natural gas) projects in Canada that would use Marcellus Shale gas, *if* it gets built (see Canadian LNG Project Woes Europeans with Promise of Marcellus Gas). Today we published a companion story about a proposed LNG export facility planned for Maine–the Downeast LNG facility (see 2nd LNG Export Terminal for Marcellus Gas Advances – in Maine!). However, there is talk in certain quarters about the unlikelihood that many (most?) of the 30 proposed projects will actually get built, including both the Canadian and the Maine projects (see Moody’s: “Vast Majority” of LNG Export Projects Will be Canceled). We have another such story–this time from an LNG insider. Freeport LNG Development CEO Michael Smith says in addition to the four import projects currently being reworked to export, there are another four facilities that might “move forward” and see the light of day. As for the rest of the 30 proposed projects–Smith says the future for the others is “cloudy.” So which four are getting built now, and which four are on Smith’s short list of the best prospects to get built?…
