As a result of the “shale revolution,” the U.S. could emerge as a liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporter. APR countries, major LNG importers − Japan and South Korea included, became a premium market for its commercialization. Due to economic factors of U.S. LNG projects, the U.S. has determined the trend of LNG trade development in the region, and its political leaders intend to use the exports for providing “energy dominance” of the U.S. The aim of this article is to appreciate the prospects of transforming LNG exports into a tool of economic and political influence of the U.S. in the APR.
