Export ban

The Department of Energy (DOE) announced on May 17 its conditional authorization allowing the export of domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) to countries that do not have a free trade agreement (FTA) with the United States. The authorization will allow Freeport LNG Expansion, L.P. and FLNG Liquefaction, LLC to export LNG from the Freeport LNG Terminal on Quintana Island, Texas. This is the second time that DOE has approved exports of LNG from the Texas terminal. It is also the second DOE authorization for the export of LNG to non-FTA countries from any US terminal, with the first such authorization having been granted to a terminal in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
