Flint Hills granted non-FTA LNG export permit
The United States Department of Energy granted authorization to Flint Hills Resources to export LNG to non-free trade agreement nations from the Stabilis Eagle Ford facility in George West, Texas.
According to the DoE order, Flint Hills Resources, a subsidiary of Koch Industries, was granted a 20-year, multi-contract authorization to export domestically produced LNG in ISO containers or in bulk, in a volume equivalent to approximately 3.62 billion cubic feet per year of natural gas.
ISO containers will be trucked from the Stabilis facility to a port or dock located along the Gulf Coast, where the containers will be loaded onto a barge or ship for export.
Alternatively, Flint Hills states that it will export LNG in bulk, using tanker trucks to transport the LNG from the Stabilis facility directly to a bulk transport barge, a ship, or floating storage for distribution to customers.
The Stabilis plant has the capacity to produce 120,000 gallons of LNG per day and store approximately 270,000 gallons of LNG.
