EU Plans To Seek Double Imports Of Liquid Natural Gas From The U.S. As Trade Lever

The EU is seeking to double imports of liquid natural gas from the U.S. by 2023 as a part of an effort to ease trade tensions.

On Thursday, Energy Secretary Rick Perry encouraged the EU to buy more gas products from the U.S. as an attempt to steer the bloc away from Russian gas imports.

This comes after a 2018 meeting between President Trump and EU commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker to reduce trade barriers in several areas such as car exports.
