SCT&E LNG, a subsidiary of Southern California Telephone & Energy, has submitted an application seeking long-term, multi-contract authorisation to the Department of Energy (DOE) for the export of up to 12 million tpa of LNG, to countries that do not have Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with the US.
Earlier in July, SCT&E LNG filed an application with the DOE for exportation of 12 million tpa of liquefied natural gas to FTA countries. The request for exportation of 12 million tpa of LNG to non-FTA countries is non-additive, so the SCT&E LNG Terminal will export up to a total of 12 million tpa.
The requested authorisation would, however, allow SCT&E LNG to export LNG to any nation that can or will be able to import LNG via oceangoing vessel and with which trade is not prohibited by US law or policy.
SCT&E LNG Chairman, Greg Michaels, commented: "There is a lot of uncertainty from other countries providing natural gas globally. SCT&E LNG looks forward to providing certainty to those countries that desperately need LNG to cleanly fuel and grow their economies."
