Texas accounts for roughly one-quarter of US natural gas production. It exports gas via pipelines to Mexico and on ships that load liquefied natural gas from terminals in Freeport and Corpus Christi. It also supplies numerous regions of the US, including the Midwest and Northeast.

The ban prompted a response from officials in Mexico, as US gas pipeline exports to Mexico fell to 107 million cubic meters per day on Wednesday, down from an average over the past 30 days of 5.7 billion cubic meters, according to Refinitiv.

About 28.3 million cubic meters of gas can supply 5 million US homes for a day.
