LNG Tanker Tracker
July 27, 2023
A map to explore the LNG Tankers arriving and departing operational LNG export terminals in the U.S.
The U.S. recently became the world’s leading exporter of liquified natural gas (LNG). Much of that is exported via the Gulf Coast from facilities in Texas and Louisiana. Greenpeace USA put together this tanker tracker in order to investigate and monitor the activity in this region and the ramifications it has around the globe.

Calling methane gas “natural gas” is one of the biggest greenwashing schemes on the planet. Gas companies push the narrative that methane gas is “natural” and “clean” when, in fact, its life cycle emissions are almost as harmful as coal. Natural gas is also a primary feedstock for single-use plastic.
