The United States Department of Energy issues four export approval orders for upcoming Texas LNG projects.
LNG projects in Texas took another step forward this week as the U.S. DoE announced the issuing of long-term orders allowing the authorization of domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports. U.S. Secretary of Energy, Dan Brouillette, has stated that export capacity from just these four projects will be enough to supply more than half of the LNG import demand from Europe.
The four LNG projects reaching this authorization are the Annova LNG project in Brownsville, Texas with .99 Bcf/d (approximately 7 MMtpy) , the Rio Grande LNG project in Brownsville with 3.61 Bcf/d (27 MMtpy), Texas LNG in Brownsville with .56 Bcf/d (four MMtpy), and the third stage of the Corpus Christi LNG project with 1.39 Bcf/d (approximately 11.5 MMtpy). All four of these projects are expected online within the next five years.
These projects are now authorized for eventual LNG export via ocean going vessel to any country with which the U.S. has no free trade agreement requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas, and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy. The U.S. continues to be a net exporter of natural gas for four years now and is expected to nearly double export capacity in the next five years.
