DOE Vacates Excelerate Liquefaction Solutions’ LNG Export Authorization

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued an order (1) vacating Excelerate Liquefaction Solutions I, LLC’s (ELS) authorization to export LNG from its proposed terminal in Calhoun County, Texas to nations with a Free Trade Agreement with the United States and (2) granting withdrawal of ELS’s pending application to export LNG to non-FTA nations.  ELS requested the DOE actions in a September 2 letter, stating that it will no longer pursue exporting LNG pursuant to the existing and pending authorizations.  ELS had previously withdrawn its FERC application to construct the terminal for economic reasons.
