U.S. policymakers have dragged their feet on a definitive answer for liquefied natural gas, or LNG, exports for quite a while, and several countries are taking advantage of the delay. With over $150 billion at stake, companies in Australia, Canada, and Papua New Guinea have made a strong push to build out LNG export terminals to capture the lucrative Asia-Pacific market.

In this video, Fool.com contributor Tyler Crowe explains how the concentration of possible LNG export facilities along the U.S. Gulf Coast will not help the country capture this market, and how there are several companies that are betting on better success on other shores. Investors shouldn't completely fret, though, because many American companies are the ones setting up shop overseas.

The growing production of natural gas from hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling is flooding the North American market and resulting in record-low prices for natural gas. Enterprise Products Partners, with its superior integrated asset base, can profit from the massive bottlenecks in takeaway capacity by taking on large-scale projects.

Oh by all means, lets take American resources and sell them overseas for speculator profits and at the same time jack the price IN AMERICA when they scream "supply is tight". Just like they are doing for gasoline.
