Texas LNG Gets Approval To Export LNG To FTA countries

Texas LNG’s liquefaction plan at its 110 acre complex at the Port of Brownsville

  Texas LNG LLC today announced that it has received authorization from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to export domestically produced LNG to all existing, and any future, countries that have, or enter into, an FTA with the Government of the United States. DOE approval of FTA exports is an important component of the regulatory process necessary to develop Texas LNG's project on its 110 plus acre site with deepwater frontage to the Port of Brownsville shipping channel in Brownsville, Texas, USA. Under the DOE's order, Texas LNG has received authority to export on its own behalf and as agent for others, up to the equivalent of 100 Bcf/y (approximately 2 MTA) of domestically produced LNG.  The authorization is for a term of 25 years, commencing on the earlier of the date of first export or 10 years from the date the authorization is issued. Vivek Chandra, CEO of Texas LNG remarked, “Receipt of DOE FTA approval is a key regulatory milestone for the Texas LNG project. We thank the DOE for their analysis and approval of our application and look forward to receipt of non-FTA approvals in the near future. LNG exports will play an important role in the continued development of the US gas industry and our Texas LNG project will provide valuable employment and other economic benefits to Brownsville and the Rio Grande Valley region.”
