In terms of the actual numbers they're going to be generating and with the margins will look like very as you look at upn utilities, they are selling less gas, less revenues and profit rate some companies who are lng traders made be able to arbitrage between europe and the u.s. and asia.

It may be the year of the lng trader.

The us market is long way -- is largely a liquefied.

As a start to change come as we get more and more events like this, how will that impact future energy planning?

The first thing is we are not kind to get those terminals until 2016 or 17. this year the department of energy will have to make some decisions.
