MORE SESSION DETAILS

The United States could soon be a net exporter of energy. Despite the Trump Administration's streamlining of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission policies to expedite liquefied natural gas facility permitting, evidence shows that energy policy focused too heavily on exporting LNG is misguided. Acknowledging the value of natural gas to the petrochemical manufacturing industries and developing LNG as a marine fuel provide a more robust energy policy. This poster discusses the shale revolution's implications on transportation planning for U.S. port, maritime, road, and intermodal infrastructure, and how short sea-shipping may provide an alternative transportation planning method to existing intermodal trucking and rail movements and networks.
