Export Application for Liquefied Natural Gas Submitted
The Department of Energy has received an application from Fourchon LNG LLC requesting long-term, multi-contract authorization to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas in a volume equivalent to 260 billion cubic feet per year for 20 years. This LNG would be exported from the company’s proposed natural gas liquefaction facility in Lafourche Parish, La., to any country with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy. This would include both countries with which the U.S. has a free trade agreement requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas as well as all other countries. Protests, motions to intervene, notices of intervention, and written comments are due by Dec. 26.
