SandRidge Energy Inc. (SD), Cheniere Energy, Inc. (LNG): China Will Take the Top Spot That America No Longer Wants

While we still have a long way to go, we really are making great progress which could lead to energy independence. What’s even more mind-blowing is that we could eventually begin to export our excess. As it stands right now, Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSEMKT:LNG) is poised to begin exporting natural gas by 2015. There are dozens of similar projects in the works which, if approved, could spur additional investment into growing our natural gas production. While natural gas exports are a hotly contested issue, just being in the position to export is a huge leap forward.

While we might be slipping into second place in terms of oil imports, we’re really sitting in the pole position when it comes to our energy future. Our best days as a nation really and truly could be ahead of us. That’s why I’m excited for the day that China rises to the top of the heap when it comes to importing oil.
