Sullivan Condemns Biden’s LNG Export Permitting Ban

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) released the following statement after the Biden administration announced a pause on all pending non-Free-Trade Agreement (FTA) export permit applications, effectively banning new export permits for liquefied natural gas (LNG).

“Once again, President Biden has caved to far-left extremists, choosing politics over the actual climate science, gutting the American workforce, and putting America’s national security and our allies at risk,” Sen. Sullivan said. “When America exports clean-burning natural gas, global emissions go down and our allies can get off Russian gas. These are facts.

“Fortunately, the Alaska LNG project already received all of its export permits and remains a viable source of clean-burning energy for America and our allies.”

Senator Sullivan and 25 of his Senate colleagues sent a letter today to President Biden and Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm blasting the pause.
