Cheniere has begun construction of the first LNG export plant in the United States for more than four decades – and only the second ever. LNG Business Review caught up with chairman and CEO Charif Souki at the recent World Gas Conference in Kuala Lumpur and asked him: How is the project proceeding? And what are the prospects for other LNG exports from the US? Souki was unequivocal: the US is well-placed to export a lot of gas, while meeting domestic needs, “without significantly affecting prices”. What’s more, he sees greater political support for, than against.
