NATO Summit 2024- US LNG to Europe

America’s NATO Partners Anticipate U.S. LNG Supplies To Europe

America’s abundant energy resources pair perfectly with Europe’s scarcity of oil and gas to create a win-win partnership, enabling Europe to avoid total energy dependence on authoritarian suppliers in Russia and the Middle East.

The summit, which will run from Tuesday to Thursday, is largely expected to focus on reassuring Ukraine of the alliance’s unwavering support

The pause ended in early July after 16 states successfully sued the Biden administration, arguing that the export restrictions were unconstitutional

Coincidentally, energy giant Shell signed a 10-year agreement to sell U.S. LNG to the Swiss-based energy company MET Group. The agreement will “help to ensure security of supply for its customers across Europe, ranging from its own gas-fired power plant demand to energy-intensive industrial companies, SMEs, and households,” MET announced.

When you think about Northstream being destroyed and the US becoming the major LNG supplier to Europe- you understand motive.


United States President Joe Biden will host leaders of NATO in Washington, DC, this week as the military alliance marks 75 years since its formation

Who will be there?

Biden will host outgoing NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg and the leaders of other NATO countries, who will include German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and, for the first time, Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson.

Leaders from NATO partner countries will also be present. Partner nations are restricted from joining the alliance because of Article 10 of its treaty, which limits new members to Europe. Leaders of partner countries expected at the summit include:

  • Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelenskyy
  • Prime Minister Fumio Kishida of Japan
  • Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese
  • President Yoon Suk-yeol of South Korea
  • New Zealand Prime Minister Christopher Luxon
  • European Union leaders, including Charles Michel, head of the European Council, and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen
