U.S. Likely To Become Net Exporter Of Energy, Says Federal Forecast

Workers move equipment at a natural gas well site near Burlington, Pa., in 2010. A federal report said Thursday natural gas production is on track to make the U.S. a net exporter of energy by about 2030.

The Energy Information Administration reports the shift will probably happen by 2030, and it credits domestic natural gas production. The agency says it is watching variables such as new technology.
