North America has seen nothing short of a revolution in natural gas production over the last several years. Evidence of this revolution can be found in the dramatic shift in projections from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) during that timeframe. In 2005, the EIA projected US imports of LNG — natural gas cooled to -160o C (-256o F) to enable it to be transported by ocean-going tankers — would hit 12 Bcf/day by 2030. Seven years later, the EIA projected that by 2030 exports of LNG could be as high as 12 Bcf/day. To see a swing of 24 Bcf/day in official projections over the course of seven years is nothing short of remarkable.
