Floridian Natural Gas Storage Company (Floridian) has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Energy to export LNG produced at its liquefaction and storage facility to be built in Martin County.
Floridian requests authorization to export up to 14.6 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas per year, less the volume that may be under firm contract to Carib Energy.
This application requests authorization to export the LNG in cargo containers approved by the International Standards Organization (ISO containers) to any nation with which the United States has a Free Trade Agreement (FTA), as well as to any nation with which the United States does not have an FTA.
Floridian seeks this authorization for a term of twenty years commencing on the earlier of the date of first export or the date five years from the date of the final order granting the requested authorization.
