Again someone who wants to kick the ball without understanding the true dynamics in US LNG. US LNG sellers are not the government. That’s not like a state oil producer in the Middle East. Those are private companies, and they don’t give a damn about European politics or security of supply. All they want is making as much money as possible with their exports. And Trump cannot command them to give LNG to a country that’s an ally. He can arrange talks between parties, he can ask LNG projects in the US to also look into Europe, but Europe is not a premium market for any seller. It’s a flexibility tool to world LNG. No more – but no less as well.
The “energy dominance” term is both a major vow and focus of “America First” vision and a hallmark of the energy policies pursued by Trump administration. It reflects the return of the United States as a leading global oil producer but also the aim to dominate the global markets of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
