ANGA: Freeport LNG decision is a ‘positive step’

LNG Industry,

America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) has commented on the final Department of Energy approval of the Freeport LNG export facility.

Frank Macchiarola, Executive VP of Government Affairs at ANGA, released the following statement:

“The Department of Energy's decision to grant final approval to the Freeport liquefied natural gas export terminal is another positive step toward strengthening America's energy security. This approval, which clears the way for Freeport LNG's facility to export up to 1.8 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day, comes on the heels of a recent EIA analysis finding that increased shale production is poised to meet increased demand from added LNG exports.

“Furthermore, there is a growing chorus of experts, public and private, who agree that increased LNG exports will provide significant benefits to our nation. We applaud the administration on this decision and continue to urge them to provide swift approval for the remaining terminals that are under review.”
