Responding to this news, Charlie Riedl, the Executive Director of the Center for Liquefied Natural Gas (CLNG), has issued the following statement: “This is an important milestone for Golden Pass and another stepping stone in the development of the US LNG industry. Having waited for over two and a half years to secure its FERC approval, we hope the Department of Energy will waste no time in reviewing Golden Pass’ application to export to non-FTA countries, so that the developers can move ahead with realising this important project.”
Upon completion, the export terminal will include three 5.2 million tpy liquefaction trains with an overall capacity of 15.6 million tpy. More on FERC’s decision and the project itself can be read here.
