American gas to the rescue?

“American Gas to the Rescue? The Impact of US LNG Exports on European Security and Russian Foreign Policy” is the title of a new study released by the SIPA Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University, headed by President Obama’s former staff member Jason Bordoff. The study, which in many ways corroborates the findings and analysis in the recently published report “The Russian Energy Matrix,” by the European gas expert Jonathan Stern at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, represents a milestone in this discussion. Its value lies especially in the fact that it dispenses completely with the kind of unsubstantiated, politicized rhetoric that has clouded so much of the discussion on both sides of the Atlantic, and instead realistically analyses the prospects and potential ramifications of future US LNG exports.
