US Senator for Louisiana, Bill Cassidy, has praised the final approval of the Cameron LNG exportation authorisation by the US Department of Energy (DOE).
In a statement, Dr Cassidy said: “I applaud the Department of Energy’s final approval of the Cameron LNG’s exportation authorisation to non-free trade agreement (FTA) countries. This is great news for Southwest Louisiana and the American energy economy. This approval will bring billions of dollars of investment and good high-paying jobs to Louisiana […] There is a tremendous global demand for American natural gas and today the Department of Energy made the right decision in making our resources available to international customers. The Department should approve other LNG projects in an expeditious manner.”
The DOE has authorised Cameron LNG’s current facility in Calcasieu and Cameron Parishes, Louisiana, for the export of an additional 1.41 billion ft3/d to non-FTA countries. As a result, cumulative DOE authorised non-FTA export volume at Cameron LNG will be 13.22 billion ft3/d.
