It's just one of two catalysts that will transform the United States into one of the world's biggest energy exporters - and investing in LNG will get a big boost as a result...
The Irresistible Future of Natural Gas Investing
Today, I'm flying back from Houston... again.
It seems I've been spending quite a bit of time in Texas these days - and for good reason. The rollout of our exciting 25-well oil and natural gas investing project is just one.

How to Invest in the Global Race to Export LNG
As Money Morning Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors told us yesterday, the United States on Aug. 7 finally approved its third application to export LNG (liquefied natural gas).
