Yoho, Gonzalez-Colon to host 2019 American LNG Summit in Puerto Rico
Washington, D.C. — Today, Congressman Ted Yoho and Congresswoman Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon will host the 2019 American LNG Summit in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This is the second summit of its kind to be held, the first of which was hosted by Congressman Ted Yoho in Jacksonville, FL in August 2018.
More than 80 different organizations, agencies, industry professionals, elected officials and diplomats will come together for a two-day summit to explore the current status of American LNG and its future across the globe. This summit comes on the heels of Congressman Ted Yoho re-introducing the LNG Small Scale Access Act (H.R. 1836) this week which would expedite the approval of natural gas exports equal to or less than 51.1 billion cubic feet per year.
Topics to be discussed include LNG infrastructure development, a look at the global future of gas imports and exports, the regulatory environment, LNG’s role in National security, and emerging LNG technologies & opportunities.
“At the end of 2018, demand for LNG has seen a sixty-percent increase from what it was in 2017. We must capitalize on the growth of this energy sector. America has an abundance of LNG and industry leaders to carry it around the world to new and emerging markets,” said Yoho. “That is why we have brought together industry leaders, regulators, and policy makers – but in addition, we have brought in several foreign delegations such as Turkey, Bangladesh, the Dominican Republic, the European Union, Canada, Taiwan, Japan and Spain.”
The second day of the summit will include site visits to strategic LNG projects around the island.
Press is encouraged to attend the 2019 American LNG Summit to learn more and to speak with attendees. The event will be available via Facebook Live on Congressman Ted Yoho’s page. http://www.Facebook.com/CongressmanTedYoho
