The devastation that hit Puerto Rico is an opportunity to build a new energy future for the Commonwealth with our natural gas, helping us at the same time.
There was a Congressional hearing the other day focused on the efforts to help Puerto Rico recover from the recent hurricane damage that so devastated the island. Something very interesting came out of the discussion that could be the basis of some great initiatives of benefit to just about everyone. It’s all about LNG and how shipping the stuff produced on the mainland could be a big boon to our fellow Americans from the Island of Enchantment as well as those who live in our rural areas where shale gas is produced.
The hearing was reported in the Washington Post “Energy 202” daily report on energy and environmental issues. Here’s the bit that caught the eye of one our readers, who forwarded it to me:
During the hearing, Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) asked Noel Zamot, the revitalization coordinator for Puerto Rico’s oversight board, about using liquefied natural gas as an energy source on the island.
