The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) approved Goven Natural Gas Holding’s application to export domestically produced LNG in ISO IM07/TVAC-ASME LNG containers transported on ocean going vessels, in a volume up to the equivalent of 2 Bcf of natural gas.
Goven plans to export this proposed volume of LNG to the free trade agreement (FTA) nations of Dominican Republic, El Salvador. Guatemala. Honduras, and Nicaragua. The company won the authorization for a two-year term.
Goven is a Florida limited liability company with its principal place of business in Miami, Florida. Goven said that, although it has not yet entered into any contract for the export of LNG, it is currently negotiating with several prospective customers in the requested FTA nations.
The company also said that no new facilities will be constructed in the United States in connection with its proposed export of natural gas.
