The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) approved Sabine Pass Liquefaction’s (SPL) application to export any surplus LNG to FTA countries, any volume of natural gas produced from Trains 5 and 6 that is not already committed for export under its SPAs with TGPNA and Ccntrica, in an amount not to exceed the equivalent of 314 Bcf/yr of natural gas for the requested 20-year term.
With this current order, SPL now holds four FTA export authorizations in a volume of LNG not to exceed 1,306.3 Bcf/yr of natural gas.
SPL and its affiliate, Sabine Pass LNG, are currently developing a liquefaction project consisting of four LNG production trains located at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Cameron Parish, La. SPL also recently announced plans to construct two additional LNG production trains, for a total of six trains.
