Natural gas and the Ukraine

This piece in the New York Times caught my attention <a href=”″>US seeks to reduce Ukraine’s reliance on Russia for natural gas</a>.  It is a puff piece, but points to current conversation.

From my reading it seems we would be shipping LNG to Germany and Europe?  There is only one facility able to do that in the US currently. So anyone know how this might be possible?

The article also implies the Europeans stored extra natural gas as a result of urging from a US agency…one would think they could have addressed the issue on their own especially after the troubles in Georgia rather rely on the US for advice.  Are we always this self-absorbed?
