DOE Grants Non-FTA Exports from Proposed Floridian Natural Gas Storage Facility

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a final opinion and order authorizing Floridian Natural Gas Storage Company, LLC (Floridian) to export LNG produced at its proposed liquefaction and storage facility in Martin County, Fla.  The LNG would be loaded into ISO containers at the facility then transported via truck to port facilities for export on ocean-going vessels to countries without a Free Trade Agreement (non-FTA) with the United States.  The order authorizes Floridian to export over a 20-year period up to equivalent of 14.6 Bcf/year of natural gas, less the portion of the total of 14.6 Bcf/year that may be under firm contract directly or indirectly to Carib Energy (USA) LLC.
