LNG export terminals are off to the races! There is a gold rush like fervor to LNG facilities because each company wants to shore up market share before demand is fulfilled around the globe. Chevron's Angola LNG is one of the first ones to get there. Chevron just announced that it had shipped its first LNG cargo from the facility to Brazil last week. The addition of LNG provides producers something they haven't had in the domestic market there, demand for natural gas.
Although this project is one of the first facilities to come online as LNG exports ramp up, it could be just the beginning for Africa LNG. Projects on the other side of the continent are finding massive quantities of natural gas, and LNG exports is the most likely market for it. In this video, Fool.com contributors Tyler Crowe and Aimee Duffy take a look at the potential for African natural gas and some of players in the space.
With other places around the world building LNG export facilities at a rapid pace, the U.S. could get squeezed out of the market before it has a chance to compete. If there is one company that can arrive at the game in time, its Cheniere Energy. With natural gas prices expected to rest in the $4-$5 range per MMbtu, Cheniere is primed for solid gains once the initial LNG trains start chugging in the first half of 2015. Don't wait until then - this 2013 darling continues to outperform the broad markets. Be sure to read all the details in this premium research report.
