Ukraine crisis raising support for natural gas exports, Bloomberg says

The crisis in Ukraine is increasing support for weakening restrictions on the export of U.S. natural gas, according to Bloomberg. GOP House Speaker John Boehner called on President Obama to "dramatically expedite" U.S. natural gas exports, the news service stated. Companies that are looking to export natural gas from the U.S. include Cheniere (LNG), Sempra (SRE), Dominion (D), BG Group (BRGYY), and Southern Union, which is jointly owned by Energy Transfer Equity (ETE) and Energy Transfer Partners (ETP).
