The versatility of gas means it can be used for heat, for power, for combined heat and power (CHP), for petrochemicals and fertilizers, and in internal combustion engines. Natural gas can also be used as a source of hydrogen, and with biogas can contribute to decarbonization.

Texas producers need flexibility, which turns into considerable opportunities for expanded use of liquefied natural gas and compressed natural gas in land transport and for LNG at sea. New geographical markets are also available for natural gas in Southeastern Europe, and Central Asia.

Prospects for new markets are endless and Texas must be ready to capitalize on those markets as they emerge. We must work with partners in Mexico to build a pipeline that connects Texas producers to markets in South Korea and other parts of Southeast Asia. The real benefit? It limits Russian involvement in the natural gas trade industry. Who would argue with that?
