Although U.S. politicians are talking about exporting gas to Europe to reduce the continent's dependency on Russia, America can export little gas to Europe in the short-term, according to The New York Times. Moreover, a facility being built by Cheniere Energy (LNG) is the only plant that has received all of the regulatory approvals necessary to export natural gas, and in 2017 it will only be able to handle one-sixth of the total amount of gas exported by Russia to Europe, the newspaper added. Companies that are looking to export natural gas from the U.S. other than Cheniere include Sempra (SRE), Dominion (D), BG Group (BRGYY), and Southern Union, which is jointly owned by Energy Transfer Equity (ETE) and Energy Transfer Partners (ETP). Gazprom (OGZPY) is Russia's largest natural gas exporter. Reference Link
