DOE Issues Export Authorization to Sabine Pass, Freeport LNG

Recently the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Fossil Energy issued authorizations to export  previously imported LNG to Sabine Pass and Freeport LNG. Addressing potential concerns regarding effects of LNG re-exports on the U.S. domestic gas market, DOE’s order on the Sabine Pass application notes that “[b]ased on a review of the complete record, DOE/OFE finds that the LNG to be exported is not needed in order to meet the market demand for natural gas/LNG on a competitively priced basis.” Find both orders on the website of the Office of Fossil Energy.
