Over 30 years ago, an Energy Transfer predecessor responded to the increased demand for natural gas in the United States by investing in infrastructure that enabled receipt of large-scale deliveries of LNG. The regasification facility, located near Lake Charles, has earned and sustained a reputation for safety and reliability, while helping to ensure a dependable natural gas supply for consumers in the United States.

According to the US Energy Information Administration, LNG imports to the United States peaked in 2007. America's demand for LNG imports has declined due to advances in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, which unlocked the potential of huge shale basins, supplying the US market with inexpensive gas. Simultaneously, the growth of Asian economies has helped absorb the supply excess that resulted from reduced US demand.

Shell is working with Energy Transfer toward adding export capability to the existing import facility near Lake Charles. Today, Lake Charles LNG has come full circle and is now positioned to provide natural gas to world markets, helping ensure Louisiana’s place in America’s energy future.
