Dow Chemical CEO Criticizes DOE LNG Export Study

Dow Chemical Company (Dow) released a statement from its chairman and chief executive officer, Andrew N. Liveris, criticizing the U.S. Department of Energy’s recent report on the macroeconomic effects of LNG exports, calling the report “flawed, misleading, and based on outdated, inaccurate and incomplete economic data.” Liveris stated that the report, which concluded that LNG exports would provide economic benefits to the United States, “offers the baffling conclusion that the U.S. would be better off using its domestic natural gas advantage to fuel growth and jobs in other regions versus strengthening the U.S. economy through manufacturing and benefiting consumers with lower energy costs.”
