DOE Grants Carib Energy Non-FTA LNG Export Authority

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued an order authorizing Carib Energy (USA) LLC to export over a 20-year period 1.3 Bcf/year (0.004 Bcf/day) of LNG in ISO containers to nations in Central America, South America, or the Caribbean that do not have a Free Trade Agreement with the United States.  The LNG can be sourced from the following five existing natural gas liquefaction facilities owned and operated by Pivotal LNG, Inc. or by one of Pivotal’s affiliates: the Trussville LNG Facility (Trussville, Alabama), the Chattanooga LNG Facility (Chattanooga, Tennessee), the Riverdale LNG Facility (Riverdale, Georgia), the Cherokee LNG Facility (Ball Ground, Georgia), and the Macon LNG Facility (Macon, Georgia).  The LNG will be loaded at one of the Pivotal facilities and transported by truck to any port in the southeastern United States capable of accommodating LNG exports by ISO containers transported on ocean-going container vessels.
