DELNG files for export authorization with DOE

DELNG files for export authorization with DOE

Downeast LNG filed an application with the U.S. Department of Energy to export LNG from its proposed export-import LNG terminal in Robbinston, Maine. 

The company seeks to export domestically-produced liquefied natural gas in an amount up to 173 million British thermal units per year for a 20-year period.

Exports would be sent to countries with which the United States have or will enter into a free trade agreement for the trade in natural gas and LNG, according to the application.

The DELNG project will include three million mtpa of nominal liquefaction capacity and the construction is planned for start in mid-2016.

One thought on “DELNG files for export authorization with DOE”

  1. It’s important to note that Downeast LNG’s project would require LNG ship transits through Canada’s portion of Passamaquoddy Bay — transits that Canada firmly and consistently prohibits, as it determined to do in 2007 face-to-face from Prime Minister Stephen Harper to then-President George W. Bush. It is also important to note that, for tens of reasosns, Downeast LNG’s site selection cannot comply with Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO) published terminal siting best safe practices. Downeast LNG would rather lose a fight with a sovereign country than move to a location where they might actually have a chance at succeeding.
