Energy Workforce President Tim Tarpley participated on a panel at the 4th Annual American LNG Forum in Houston. This event highlighted current market trends and opportunities throughout the LNG industry, while program attendees had the opportunity to hear from industry experts, network and engage in discussions on the future of the industry.
Tarpley’s panel focused specifically on LNG market dynamics. During the discussion, Tarpley discussed issues around LNG permitting and regulatory burdens, while he highlighted opportunities for LNG exports and the U.S. industry’s ability to support allies overseas.
“I’m bullish on LNG,” Tarpley said. “The Russian invasion of Ukraine really did remind the world that it matters where you get your energy from, it matters who your trading partners are, and the United States is probably one of the most stable countries in the world to trade with.”
The panel also delved into issues around financing of large-scale LNG projects, market stability in the face of the war in Ukraine and new technologies and innovations that are emerging in the industry. Tarpley was joined on his panel by Bob Kubis, Director – Americas Natural Gas, LNG & NGL, Wood Mackenzie; Justin Brady, Director of Midstream and Marketing, Chesapeake Energy; Amy Chen Davis, Vice President of LNG, Energy Transfer; James E. Campos, Deputy Secretary for Commerce & Trade, for the Commonwealth of Virginia; Former Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of Energy; and moderator Amanda C. Duhon, Regional Director, North & Central America, Energy Industry Council.
The two-day program successfully highlighted the importance of the U.S. LNG industry globally at a pivotal time for companies looking to grow and strengthen their products.
