  • Finding 1: US LNG exports have doubled since 2019

  • Finding 2: Projects under construction will double US LNG export capacity over 2023 levels by 2027

  • Finding 3: The US is surpassing its LNG commitments to Europe and current US LNG exports are sufficient to meet Europe’s LNG needs

  • Finding 4: Companies are seeking approval for new LNG projects that would quadruple US LNG export capacity compared to current (2023) levels

  • Finding 5: US LNG expansion will compete with renewable energy – not coal and gas – around the world

  • Finding 6: If all projects are approved, GHG emissions from DOE-authorized LNG exports would be 3.9 gigatons annually; US-sourced LNG emissions would be larger than the GHG emissions from the European Union, whether using a gross or net accounting approach

  • Finding 7: If all projects currently in the permitting pipeline are approved, GHG emissions from US-approved LNG exports would be greater than one thousand coal-fired power plants

  • Finding 8: If all projects currently in the permitting pipeline are approved, GHG emissions from U.S.-approved LNG exports would be equivalent to 850 million gasoline-powered vehicles
