Flint Hills requests LNG export permit
Flint Hills Resources recently filed an application with the U.S. Department of Energy seeking permission to export up to 3.62 billion cubic feet of natural gas to FTA and non-FTA countries.
According to the filing, Flint Hills, which is a unit of Koch Industries, is seeking authorization to export LNG for a period of 20 years.
Flint Hills is currently negotiating with Stabilis LNG Eagle Ford for the purchase of LNG from Stabilis LNG’s liquefaction facility located in George West, Texas. The facility has a storage capacity of approximately 270,000 gallons of LNG and the capacity to produce 120,000 gallons of LNG per day.
The company intends to load the liquefied natural gas onto ISO LNG containers or tanker trucks that would subsequently be delivered to a port or dock location along the Gulf Coast where they will be loaded onto a barge or ship for delivery to non-FTA countries.
It may also use tanker trucks to deliver LNG from the Stabilis facility directly to a bulk transport barge, ship or floating storage for distribution to customers in both FTA and non-FTA countries.
