US DOE approves LNG exports from Floridian facility

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) said it has authorized Floridian Natural Gas Storage Company to export LNG by ISO containers on vessels from the proposed Floridian liquefaction facility in Martin County.

The volume approved in DOE’s order is equivalent to approximately 14.6 Bcf/yr of natural gas (0.04 Bcf/d).

Floridian authorization is valid for a 20-year term, and the LNG can be exported to nations with a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States.

Floridian is a Delaware limited liability company with its principal place of business in Houston, Texas.  It is controlled by Tesla Resources, which owns 98 percent of Floridian.
