DOE Approves Additional Sabine Pass Export Volumes and Goven Natural Gas Holding LNG Exports Via Containers

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) approved Sabine Pass Liquefaction’s (SPL) application to export to nations having a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States any surplus LNG volumes from trains 5 and 6 of the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Cameron Parish, La. not already committed to contract with Total Gas & Power North America or Centrica.  The authorization covers up to 314 Bcf/year over twenty years.  DOE will consider SPL’s request to export the same volumes to non-FTA nations separately.  DOE’s order can be found here, and the complete docket for SPL’s export application can be found here.

DOE also recently approved Goven Natural Gas Holdings’ application to export over a two-year period up to 2 Bcf of LNG via ISO containers shipped on vessels to FTA nations Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.  DOE’s order can be found here, and Goven’s export application can be found here.
