Freeport gets DOE authorization to export LNG to non-FTA countries

WASHINGTON, US: The Department of Energy (DOE) has conditionally authorized Freeport LNG Expansion, LP and FLNG Liquefaction LLC (Freeport) to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) to countries that do not have a free trade agreement (FTA) with the United States from the Freeport LNG Terminal on Quintana Island, Texas, US.

Freeport previously received approval to export LNG from this facility to FTA countries on 10 February 2011. Subject to environmental review and final regulatory approval, the facility is conditionally authorized to export at a rate of up to 1.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day for a period of 20 years. The Department granted the first authorization to export LNG to non-FTA countries in May 2011 for the Sabine Pass LNG Terminal in Cameron Parish, Louisiana at a rate of up to 2.2 billion cubic feet per day.
