The United States of America is making plans to improve power supply to Nigeria, Cote D’Ivoire and South Africa, through LNG development and exports, thus changing its status as a major energy importer to exporter, Vanguard reports.

Rick Perry, United States Energy Secretary, disclosing this at the ongoing Africa Oil Week conference in South Africa said; “We talked about a lot of opportunities – LNG, coal, but it all goes to the issue of power and power being able to be delivered into places that don’t take electricity for granted.”

Perry stated further: “The United States wants to be partners with Nigeria, South Africa and throughout the continent. American LNG is going out to the world. Projects by Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and Exxon to convert gas discoveries in Mozambique to LNG are welcome even as the U.S. seeks to boost its own shipments.”
