Freeport LNG granted non-FTA export approval

LNG Industry,

The US Department of Energy has issued two final authorisations for Freeport LNG Expansion and FLNG Liquefaction (Freeport) to export LNG to countries that do not have a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the US.

The Freeport LNG Terminal, located in Quintana Island, Texas is authorised to export LNG up to the equivalent of 1.4 billion ft3/d of natural gas and 0.4 billion ft3/d, for a total volume of 1.8 billion ft3/d, for a period of 20 years.

Following the recent announcement of procedural changes, the DOE evaluated the two Freeport applications after they completed the environmental review required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

The Department conducted an extensive, careful review of the Freeport LNG applications. Among other factors, the DOE considered the economic, energy security, and environmental impacts and determined that exports at a rate of up to 1.4 billion ft3/d and 0.4 billion ft3/d for a period of 20 years was not inconsistent with the public interest.
