Texas LNG said it has received the authorization from the United States Department of Energy to export U.S-sourced liquefied natural gas to non-FTA countries.

The authorization’s 20-year term will begin on the date when Texas LNG commences commercial export of LNG for a total volume of 204 Bcf/yr of natural gas, which corresponds to Texas LNG’s proposed 2 train, 4 million tonnes per annum (MTA) LNG export facility located in the Port of Brownsville, Texas, the company said in its statement.

The DOE previously authorized Texas LNG to export LNG to countries that have a Free Trade Agreement with the United States requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas.

On November 22, 2019, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) authorized Texas LNG to site, construct, and operate the project with a liquefaction capacity of 4 mtpa of LNG.

The DOE participated as a cooperating agency in FERC’s environmental review of the Texas LNG project under the National Environmental Policy Act and adopted FERC’s environmental review of the project.
