Strom files for non-FTA export authorization with DOE

Strom filed an application with the US Department of Energy seeking authorization to export liquefied natural gas to non-FTA countries. 

Strom is developing a project to liquefy the domestically produced natural gas at a facility in Crystal River, Florida, using modular, scalable and portable systems. According to Strom, the natural gas for the modular liquefaction units would be supplied through Florida state regulated interstate lateral pipeline operated outside Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s jurisdiction.

The company intends to begin production with two small-scale MLNG units producing 90,000 gallons of LNG per day with 300,000 gallons of modular LNG storage in three tanks.

Strom contends that its operations will not be subject to FERC jurisdiction, due to previous rulings and requests DOE to evaluate its compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act or designate the proper agency.

In its application Strom requests for itself or as agent for others a total export volume not to exceed a total of 56.42 billion standard cubic feet per year of natural gas over a period of twenty-five years. This would allow Strom to export LNG to Non-FTA countries via ISO containers transported by ocean-going carriers.
