NEW YORK (ICIS)--US-based ExxonMobil is exploring several liquefied natural gas (LNG) export projects in North America, its chief executive said on Wednesday.
“We are undertaking initial studies on LNG export terminals in Texas, Alaska and Canada,” said chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson at the company’s annual analyst day at the New York Stock Exchange.
ExxonMobil has major LNG export capacity in Qatar, where it is taking advantage of gas from the world’s largest non-associated gas field.
The company is also developing an LNG export project in Papua New Guinea, which will have two trains comprising 6.9m tonnes/year of LNG capacity by 2014.
It is adding infrastructure for a potential third train as well.
