Potential Light at End of Jones Act LNG Tunnel?

For some time we have criticized the 100 year-old Jones Act that prevents LNG carriers built and/or crewed by other counties from transporting LNG from one U.S. port to another U.S. port (see Puerto Rico Imports Russian LNG Thanks to U.S. Jones Act). Among the statements we’ve made is that the Jones Act prevents all such shipments, with the implication there are no U.S. Jones Act shippers. We were recently contacted by an MDN subscriber to gently chide us and set the record straight. There ARE at least two Jones Act shippers, but perhaps not in the way you think.
