Energy officials in the USA appeared to rebrand natural gas produced in the country as "freedom gas", according to a statement announcing an increase in exports.


The US Department of Energy said that the expansion of a Texas facility meant more "molecules of USA freedom" could be produced and exported all across the world.


The Quintana-based facility produces liquified natural gas (LNG).


The move was a clear indication of USA commitment to promoting clean energy, according to the statement.


However, the rebranding comes amid a Trump administration push to roll back climate change legislation introduced by Mr. Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, that targeted vehicle emissions.

After taking office, Mr. Trump announced the USA would withdraw from the 2015 Paris climate change agreement, saying he wanted to negotiate a new "fair" deal that would not disadvantage USA businesses and workers.


According to the BBC, the move was decried by climate change scientists and campaigners, and Donald Trump has faced accusations of hampering global efforts to cut carbon emissions.


The announced expansion of the facility on Quintana Island will support about 3,000 new jobs in the area, as the Department of Energy stated.


"Increasing export capacity from the Freeport LNG project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving America's allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy," said Mark Menezes, the USA undersecretary of energy.


The term freedom gas is reminiscent of freedom fries, coined in the USA 2003 as an alternative to French fries following France's opposition to the American invasion of Iraq.


Republican Congressman Walter B Jones with his fellow Republican Robert W Ney pushed for cafeterias in the House of Representatives to rename their French toast "freedom toast."
