The United States’ Department of Energy is considering rebranding fossil fuel.
The department calls natural gas “molecules of US freedom” in a statement it made public during the Tenth Clean Energy Ministerial held in British Columbia.
The Energy Department is presently examining the extension of its Freeport LNG Terminal to make it accessible to transport the natural gas in liquefied form. This is supposed to provide additional support for 30,000 construction and engineering jobs.
Mark Menezes [Under Secretary of Energy] said:
“Increasing export capacity from the Freeport LNG project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving America’s allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy.
Further, more exports of U.S. LNG to the world means more U.S. jobs and more domestic growth and cleaner air here at home and around the globe. ”
Well, the export order was signed by Steven Winberg, who is the Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy.
During the Clean Energy Ministerial, Mr. Steven expressed his satisfaction that the department is contributing its quota to promoting natural gas to different parts of the world.
The U. S. Energy Information Administration compiled data that shows that natural gas produces lower carbon dioxide than coal.
This is one of the reasons why the department is considering mass producing the gas and making it available to Americans as well as people in other parts of the world.
According to the department, the production of natural gas domestically will reach a new record this year.
