Several US liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project developers are taking part in the US presidential trade mission to China in an attempt to secure deals and grab a bigger part in one of the world’s largest LNG import markets.

The trade mission is part of U.S. President Donald Trump’s first state visit to China with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Led by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, the trade mission participants, among others include Cheniere Energy’s chief executive Jack Fusco, Texas LNG chief operating officer Langtry Meyerand,  Frederick Jones, founder and chief executive of Delfin Midstream and Seifollah Ghasemi, chief executive of LNG equipment provider Air Products.

Delegation meetings are taking place on November 8 and 9 in Beijing, China.

Langtry Meyer of Texas LNG said in a statement that the company looks forward to representing the U.S. LNG industry and “promoting our China-focused strategy which includes LNG offtake, possible capital investment, and liquefaction module fabrication.”

“Our partnerships with Chinese companies will contribute to U.S – China bilateral trade growth and enable both nations to reap economic and environmental benefits,” Meyer said.
