Australia’s coal and LNG exports totalled $A56.5bn and $A22bn respectively in 2017, but Resources Minister Matt Canavan says the US is emerging as a major competitor in Asia. The US currently exports shale gas to Japan, and Canavan says Asian buyers have also expressed interest in US coal. The US has traditionally been a net energy importer, although the Department of Energy has forecast that it will be a net exporter by 2022.
