Until recently, the LNGterminalproposals were for imports, not exports. The reason for the turnabout is, yes, fracking. From the report: "U.S. shale gas production has increased significantly due to novel hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling techniques that have reduced production costs."
The Sierra Club has responded condemning the report's disregard for the impact of fracking. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden issued a statement that concludes that the price increase is reason enough not to pursue exports. Arkansas Senator Lisa Murkowski and Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe both applauded the report's findings.
