    If the nimbys and poly-ticks would get out of the way of new pipelines or enable US shipbuilders to do their jobs....

    The Jones Act, which requires vessels moving cargo between two U.S. ports to be U.S. built, owned and crewed, has kept American LNG from getting delivered to U.S. regions, particularly New England, that experience natural gas shortages.

    <snip>

    Pennsylvania alone produces so much natural gas that it raises a key question: why would a nearby neighbor need to go all the way to Russia to keep New England residents warm?
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Although the U.S. is drowning in natural gas, LNG terminals not so much. One in Alaska (no good for East Coast consumption), one in Louisiana, three or four under construction in Texas, Louisiana and Maryland. When they come online I see any Russian advantage vanishing, Jones act or not.

    But no US ships to make the delivery. Just build a damn pipeline from PA!

    I am not disagreeing with this. It's the logical economical solution except ... you have to go through Blue States ... permits, protests, lawsuits ...

    New hope?

    https://www.houstonchronicle.com/bus...g-14062299.php

    Now, Keppel AmFELS is entering a new line of business: shipbuilding. At the company's facility about 14 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border, crew are constructing two 775-foot-long container ships that will be powered by liquefied natural gas and carry cargo from the West Coast to Hawaii.

    In doing so, Keppel AmFELS joins a small fraternity of companies that build merchant ships in the United States. Itís a fraternity thatís vital to Hawaii since a nearly 100-year-old law, known as the Jones Act, only permits American made ships with American crews to operate between U.S. ports.
