U.S. GAS INFRASTRUCTURE EXPORTS INITIATIVE
USTDA and U.S. industry launched the U.S. Gas Infrastructure Exports Initiative to connect American companies to export opportunities across the gas value chain in emerging economies. The Initiative aims to advance gas infrastructure in partner countries by connecting project sponsors to cutting-edge U.S. technologies, equipment, and solutions.
As U.S. LNG export terminals are coming online, USTDA and U.S. industry are building on past successes in the gas sector. Deploying a range of tools, such as reverse trade missions, feasibility studies, training, technical assistance, and the Global Procurement Initiative: Understanding Best Value, USTDA is working with U.S. industry and government partners to facilitate new gas infrastructure exports, including LNG exports through the development of gas-related infrastructure in key LNG receiving countries.

Estimated U.S. exports generated as a result of USTDA activities
For over 25 years, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency has been facilitating new business partnerships between U.S. companies and overseas gas project sponsors. These partnerships have made strides in upstream and midstream development, including the coal bed methane and coal mine methane sectors, ultimately helping emerging markets develop the infrastructure and capacity to generate gas-fired power. At the same time, USTDA’s programs are paving the way for U.S. private sector engagement in gas projects around the world. Because of USTDA’s work, U.S. companies are exporting cutting-edge technologies and services that support the gas lifecycle, from analyzing production techniques, to initiating transportation plans, to designing power plants.
