The Trump administration is expected to review imports of liquified natural gas from the country in the coming months, a move that would help the administration meet its goal of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2025.
The move would likely have broad impact on the American energy industry.
Trump has called for the US to increase exports of LNG and he has also pledged to reverse an Obama-era ban on liquefying natural gas.
The administration is also considering a number of energy projects, including a liquefaction plant in the Gulf of Mexico and a power plant in North Dakota.
President Donald Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte met on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, in October.
Duterte called Trump “a great leader,” and Trump pledged to make it easier for the Philippines to import LNG from the United States.
The Philippine Energy Secretary said the government would welcome an increase in LNG exports to the United Kingdom.
“I am sure we will find ways to cooperate,” Pemex Chief Executive Officer Rafael Rios told the Reuters news agency.
“We will continue to promote LNG to the rest of the world.” Reuters
