Blue Water Fuels Receives DOE LNG Export Authority

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued an order authorizing Blue Water Fuels, LLC (Blue Water) to export up to 2.715 Bcf/year (0.007 Bcf/day) of domestically produced LNG over 25 years via ISO containers or in bulk, transported on vessels, to nations having a Free Trade Agreement with the United States. Blue Water seeks to purchase the LNG for export from the existing the Nu Blue Energy Facility owned by its parent company, located in Port Allen, La. The LNG will be loaded at the Nu Blue Energy Facility into ISO containers or in bulk onto tanker trucks and then will be transported by truck to the port of export, then loaded onto ocean-going vessels for transport to destination countries.
