In 2016 the first shipments of US LNG left from a terminal on the Gulf Coast, opening a new frontier of opportunity for the US natural gas industry and, on an international scale, contributing to the development of a truly global gas market. This globalizing market is eroding traditional buyer-seller relationships, including those of the U.S. and its allies, with implications for political balance.
In the latest episode of the Kleinman Center’s Energy Policy Now podcast, Kleinman Senior Fellow Dr. Anna Mikulska explores the geopolitical implications of a global natural gas market, and potential impact or U.S. foreign relations and policy.
In addition to her work with the Kleinman Center, Dr. Mikulska is a nonresident scholar in energy studies at the Baker Institute for Energy Studies at Rice University. Her research centers around European energy markets and energy policy.
