The U.S. Department of Energy has announced that it has extended the terms of seven long-term liquefied natural gas export authorizations through 2050.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced that it has extended the terms of seven long-term liquefied natural gas (LNG) export authorizations through 2050.
Under the DOE’s latest move, the Golden Pass facility currently under construction in Sabine Pass, the Texas LNG project proposed for Brownsville, the proposed Magnolia and Driftwood projects in Louisiana and the Delfin LNG export project proposed for offshore Louisiana have had their export terms extended.
An extended export term has also been approved for Sempra Energy’s Costa Azul project in Mexico.
“The success story of U.S. LNG continues to be written and these extended authorizations will ensure that the benefits from these exports continue for decades to come,” U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette said in a government statement.
