American LNG: an opportunity for greater energy security in Europe

A new opportunity, however, to redress existing excessive market dependencies, may arise with the export of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States to Europe, but it will require changes in American legislation and the expansion of European gas infrastructure.
