At a recent hearing of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, U.S. Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming highlighted the need for his legislation, the ESCAPE Act, which deals with the export of U.S. liquefied natural gas.

The ESCAPE Act enhances the energy security of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) members by providing those countries with reliable and dependable American energy. It also mandates sanctions on the Nord Stream II pipeline that would carry natural gas from Russia to Germany, along with other Russian energy export pipelines.
