U.S. to Increase Liquified Gas Exports to EU Amid Russian War on Ukraine

HeadlineMar 25, 2022

The White House says it will work with the European Union to reduce Europe’s reliance on Russian fossil fuels by replacing them with shipments of liquified natural gas from the United States. President Biden announced the deal earlier today after meeting with top European officials in Brussels.

President Joe Biden: “Today we’ve agreed on a joint game plan toward that goal, while accelerating our progress toward a secure, clean energy future.”

Biden said the U.S. would work to supply an additional 15 billion cubic meters of liquified gas to Europe through the end of this year. His announcement came after Canadian officials also promised to increase oil and gas exports to Europe. This week, U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres called it “madness” that countries are seeking to replace Russian energy with more fossil fuel production.
