Our new DOE FTA export license
is expediting the flow of LNG
We're proud to announce the approval of our latest FTA (Free Trade Agreement) export license, granting us long-term authorization to export natural gas to Mexico and to other FTA nations, subject to the requirements in the authorization. Submitted on September 9th, 2022, our export license application was granted approval by the Department of Energy (DOE) on March 3rd, 2023 - that's just 176 days!
Not only does this license allow us to export natural gas in the form of LNG to Mexico, but it also grants us access to 17 other FTA countries, in addition to any country with which the US subsequently signs a FTA. We're already doing business with a handful of these countries, meaning the delivery of gas to them is now that much more seamless!
- Dominican Republic
- El Salvador
This export license also works in connection with our Fast LNG solution, an offshore natural gas liquefaction facility built on platforms. It's a big win for our projects and a big win for our business!
Next up? We've submitted our application for a non-FTA country export license, with the goal of receiving approval within the next 2 to 3 months. We're proud to be creating critical access to affordable, cleaner energy where it’s needed most, and these export licenses are a huge step in getting us there.
