Mexico steps on the US-produced natural gas
Sales of US natural gas to Mexico set a record this month that was the equivalent of three times it stood at a decade ago. But more gas is sure to be exported later this year, when new pipelines in Mexico come on stream.
In order to meet the demand of Mexican industry, as well as the gas being sent by pipeline, more is being sent by ship in liquefied form, known as LNG.
Mexico has to substantially increase its imports because its domestic production has been declining for years.
