FERC Determines No Pre-Filing Process Required for Sabine Pass LNG Re-Export Request

In a letter issued yesterday, FERC determined that Sabine Pass LNG is not required to  pursue  the  agency’s  mandatory  pre-filing process  for LNG facilities with respect to its request for export authority for the existing Sabine Pass import terminal. FERC said that the re-export request did not involve significant safety considerations that have not already been addressed, and noted that Sabine Pass filed a letter from the U.S. Coast Guard stating that the modifications to the project will not change or exceed the impacts considered in the March 2006 Waterway Suitability Report for the existing facility.
