API urges DOE to speed up Cove Point LNG final permit

API urges DOE to speed up Cove Point LNG final permit

API urged the U.S. DOE to quickly issue a final permit for the Cove Point liquefaction project after the FERC approved the LNG export project on Monday. 


“Cove Point represents an exciting opportunity to create thousands of jobs in Maryland and extend the economic benefits of America’s energy revolution,” said API Director of Upstream and Industry Operations Erik Milito.

“It’s only the fourth project to receive FERC approval and the first East Coast facility primed to play a critical role in securing America’s trade advantage as the world’s top natural gas producer. Cove Point has the strong support of Maryland voters who understand that it will strengthen the state’s economy and help promote the security of America and it’s allies overseas.

“We welcome today’s approval, and we urge the DOE to avoid any needless delay of the project’s final permit, which granted conditional approval over a year ago. It’s time to lock-in America’s position as an energy superpower by approving Cove Point and accelerating the process for dozens of other projects still facing lengthy delays,” he added.
