Our Energy Moment grabs San Antonio and Eagle Ford backing

San Antonio-area political and industry officials this week threw support behind a new coalition promoting the export of liquefied natural gas, or LNG, saying its international trade could generate $86 billion in U.S. economic benefit over the next 20 years.Our Energy Moment, a lobbying group backed by Houston-based Cheniere Energy Inc., said continued federal approval for LNG export will boost production in South Texas’ Eagle Ford Shale energy play and create new jobs in the state, where 11 proposed LNG export facilities are now under federal review.“It makes great sense economically for the nation as well as for our region,” Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff said during a press conference Wednesday. “Additional Eagle Ford production means additional tax revenue for the state.”
