The US Department of Energy has authorized additional export volumes from two LNG (liquefied natural gas) facilities to be constructed in Texas and Louisiana. 

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said that the US is taking every step possible to move natural gas to European markets to counter the Russian threats of stopping supply. The Texas facility should start operating in 2024, while the Louisiana plant is expected to start in 2026. In 2022 so far, the volume of US exports of LNG has reached a record high of 12 billion cubic feet per day and is expected to be 13 billion cubic feet per day by the end of the year.
