Jordan Cove Approved for LNG Export

Terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon authorized to export Liquefied Natural Gas to non-free trade agreement countries The U.S. Energy Department announced that it has conditionally authorized Jordan Cove Energy Project, L.P. (Jordan Cove) to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) to countries that do not have a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States, from the Jordan Cove LNG Terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon. The Jordan Cove application was next in the order of precedence after the Energy Department conditionally authorized the proposed Cameron LNG facility. Subject to environmental review and final regulatory approval, the facility is conditionally authorized to export at a rate of up to the equivalent of 0.8 billion standard cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas, for a period of 20 years. The development of U.S. natural gas resources is having a transformative impact on the U.S. energy landscape, helping to improve our energy security while spurring economic development and job creation around the country. This increase in domestic natural gas production is expected to continue, with the Energy Information Administration forecasting a record production rate of 72.02 Bcf/d in 2014. Federal law generally requires approval of natural gas exports to countries that have an FTA with the United States
