On November 3, 2022, Governor Wolf signed into law the Republican-sponsored Philadelphia LNG Export Task Force Act.  The Act creates a Task Force to identify and examine the economic feasibility and impact, as well as obstacles, involved with making the Port of Philadelphia a Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) export terminal.  The Task Force, which will be comprised of a wide variety of industry players, would also identify potential partners in developing an LNG terminal in Philadelphia.  The passage of the Act and the work of the Task Force bodes well for the future of Philadelphia, and Pennsylvania, in becoming a leader in LNG exports.
