The study, "U.S. LNG Exports: Truth and Consequence," pointedly noted the difference between a policy decision to authorize a particular level of LNG exports, and making an assumption that exports will automatically rise to their authorized level. The global market for LNG, which is not a lawmaker or policymaker, will make that decision.
