Liquefied Natural Gas terminals and pipelines are an efficient method of transport. However, there have been environmental issues with placing hundreds of miles of pipeline in farms, forests, rivers and other natural habitats. At time the LNG is imported from foreign nations, with the dangers being increasing reliance on foreign fossil fuels, which also emits a greater percentage of pollution that regular natural gas. Currently there exists the legislative bill HB 2015, to stop liquefied natural gas terminals and pipelines which has passed in the House and is awaiting action in the Senate.
There’s already 300,000 miles of natural gas pipelines in the US and at least 200,000 miles of oil pipelines, so it would seem that we have accommodated them quite well and worries about any more may be misplaced. This is relatively irrelevant inasmuch as now (for a few years anyway) US natural gas production is so high that some are actually considering exporting LNG from the US.
