American LNG Marketing granted export permit
The United States Department of Energy issued an order granting long-term, multi-contract authorization to American LNG Marketing for export of liquefied natural gas to free trade agreement nations.
According to the order, American LNG is authorized to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas by ISO containers on vessels from the proposed Titusville facility, to be located in Titusville, Florida. The volume authorized is equivalent to approximately 30.2 Bcf/yr of natural gas for a 20-year term.
American LNG said the Titusville facility will have a total production capacity of 1,000,000 gallons of LNG per day (82.6 million cubic feet of natural gas per day), with a storage capacity of approximately 5,000,000 gallons.
American LNG further states that the Titusville facility will be connected to the domestic natural gas supply market through an interconnection constructed by
Florida Gas Transmission, near existing lateral lines located south of the proposed Titusville facility and west of the Orlando Utilities Commission’s nearby generating facility. The company adds that, through Florida Gas Transmission’s upstream interconnections, it will be able to source natural gas from a variety of suppliers in the domestic market.
