If you ask Fred Hutchison, president and CEO of the LNG Allies, things have changed a lot over the last few months.

Whereas only a few months ago European countries were eschewing U.S. LNG imports and calling it “dirty gas” international interest in U.S. natural gas has turned 180 degrees to the point where officials in Europe, Asia and Africa are clamoring for more U.S. gas to come their way. 

What a difference a Russian invasion of Ukraine, which contributed to a global supply glut, can make. Supply crunch or not, winter is coming and many nations are left wondering where they’ll get their heat.

“One of the things that is true in a number of European countries is that they’re just like the U.S. They rely on gas for fuel,” Hutchison told reporters during an LNG Allies-arranged field tour of EQT Corp. drilling, completion and production facilities in Greene County, Pa, on June 6. The tour hosted energy trade officials from 15 countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.
