The American Petroleum Institute (API) has welcomed the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) decision to grant final approval for LNG exports from the Freeport LNG terminal on Quintana Island, Texas.
Erik Milito, API Director of Upstream and Industry Operations, said: “The DOE’s approval is a welcome signal that policymakers recognise the economic and strategic importance of US energy exports. We are pleased with the progress the administration is making on LNG exports, and we urge them to continue working with leaders in Congress who are ready to accelerate America’s growth as an energy superpower by streamlining the permitting process and opening the doors to free trade.”
