DoE authorizes additional LNG exports from Sabine Pass terminal

The U.S. Department of Energy issued an order authorizing Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas. 

Under this order, Sabine Pass LNG can export approximately 203 bcf per year of natural gas. The authorization is for the term of 25 years.

With this recent approval, Sabine Pass LNG is authorized to export 1.509,3 Bcf of natural gas per year to FTA countries and 803 bcf per year to non-FTA countries, stands in the DoE filing.

Cheniere Energy informed that the project completion for the Stage 1 (Train 1 and 2) and Stage 2 ( Train 3 and 4) of the Sabine Pass Liquefaction project are at 83.1% and 56.5%, respectively.

DoE added that Sabine Pass LNG proposed to expand the liquefaction project and add two more LNG production trains.

Exports of liquefied natural gas from the Sabine Pass LNG terminal are expected to begin in 2015.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
