Lake Charles LNG Export Company LLC and Lake Charles Exports LLC have both filed an application to the US Department of Energy (DOE) for long-term, multi-contract authorisation to export up to 121 billion ft3/yr of LNG from the LNG export terminal in Lake Charles, Louisiana, US.
The companies are seeking authorisation to export LNG to countries that hold a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the US for a period of 25 years, as well as non-FTA countries for 20 years.
The companies are currently authorised to export up to the equivalent of 730 billion ft3/yr of natural gas from the Lake Charles Terminal to both FTA and non-FTA countries. The companies are seeking to align the volumes authorised for export with the liquefaction production capacity of the Lake Charles Terminal, as already approved by the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
The liquefaction project is currently under construction by Lake Charles LNG Export Company LLC at the existing Lake Charles Terminal.
