Russian gas coming to the U.S.?

Russian gas giant Gazprom opened a Houston office several years ago with the then-unthinkable notion of importing the fuel to U.S. markets. Since then it’s been clear about its hopes and dreams.
Now Platt’s says this morning it’s getting close:

“Gazprom, which holds a 50% interest Sakhalin Energy — the holding
company for the Sakhalin-2 LNG project — with Royal Dutch Shell, Mitsui & Co.
and Mitsubishi Corp., would be able to ship LNG from Sakhalin-2 to Sempra
Energy’s Costa Azul import terminal in Mexico, a source within Gazprom who
asked not to be named said.”

There’s not much demand for natural gas in Mexico right now and that terminal has a direct pipeline link into California.
What’s next, Russians drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico?
