#1 This is a very significant economic development which can be credited to the Trump administration.

#3 "Civil, well reasoned discourse" indeed.
No worries CS, the offending night soil has been removed.

#4 I continue to be amazed that combustion engine engineering has not embraced LNG as a fuel.
LNG is easy to collect as an oil industry waste product, requires little pre-consumption processing and burns much cleaner than 'additive enriched' gasoline.

#5 I might introduce you all to "drip".

When I was a kid, if you had a straight 6 Chevy or a flathead Ford you could go to the condensate drains on natural gas pipelines and fill your tank with the condensed hydrocarbons from natural gas...low octane gasoline but worked in old cars.

Free gas and it wasn't one cared about drip in those days...growing up in Texas in the early 60s did have its advantages.

#6 Skidmark, Did you mean LPG?

#7 LNG requires cryogenic fuel tanks, so no go.

CNG (Compressed NG) requires expensive 3000 PSI tanks which still store only 10% the weight of fuel of a gasoline tank.

LPG is too dangerous for cars since LPG is heavier than air and any leak is just waiting for a spark to become a fuel-air bomb.

#8 WTF is Qatar, notorious funder of Muslim Brother, Al Qaeda, ISIS and any other muslim terrorists, the owner of 70% of this project (and profits). Exporting natural gas to Europe, at 2-3 times the US price, is an invitation to print money. Even more so if export terminals are approved for the west coast and LNG is exported to Japan and Korea.

#9 WTF is Qatar

Check who runs US maritime port operations TC.

Those are all structural storage problems on the LNG. Not production or manufacturing.
