The global LNG market is growing and “it’s growing very rapidly,” said John Howie, senior vice president of upstream for Tellurian Inc., during the inaugural DUG Haynesville conference and exhibition in February.

Natural gas, he said, is “going to displace coal as we industrialize and commercialize the third world and as the population simply grows.”

With very attractive economics, the U.S. is best positioned to deliver this gas, Howie said. “We’ve got the infrastructure, we’ve got the Haynesville and we’ve got a business model designed to align our customers and our investors.”
