Specifically, API claims that it supports the Department of Energy’s (DoE) non-free trade agreement export authorisation for Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass LNG export facility, as well as the introduction of a Senate bill that is designed to speed up the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) review process of LNG terminals and other energy infrastructure.
Todd Snitchler, API’s vice president of Market Development, said: “This year is shaping up to be a big one for US LNG, and the announcements from Congress and the DOE last week are going to help our members continue to bring the American energy revolution abroad.
“We’re excited Senators Murkowski, Cassidy and Gardner are making FERC reviews of energy infrastructure, including new LNG terminals, a priority. The DOE’s export authorisation for Calcasieu Pass shows they recognise the potential for US LNG abroad, and we look forward to working with them and with Congress to get more of these projects up and running to meet growing global demand, as well as provide cleaner fuels abroad.”
