DOE authorizes Magnolia LNG exports to non-FTA countries

The US Department of Energy has approved Magnolia LNG LLC’s application to export LNG to countries that do not have a free-trade agreement with the US, DOE’s Fossil Energy Office said in a Dec. 6 Federal Register notice.

Exports would be for as much as 1.08 bcfd over a 25-year period from Magnolia’s proposed facility near Lake Charles, La., according to a Nov. 30 order that FEO issued.

FEO’s authorization is subject to terms and conditions that the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission imposed when it previously gave Magnolia approval to construct the proposed liquefier and terminal (OGJ Online, Apr. 18, 2016).

FERC also said that Kinder Morgan Louisiana Pipeline LLC could install compression and other related equipment on the KMLP system, allowing transportation of full feed-gas volumes to Magnolia LNG.
