USA: Jordan Cove Submits Non-FTA LNG Export Application
Jordan Cove Energy Project on Friday told the U.S. Department of Energy that it is seeking long-term authorization to export LNG to any nation with which the United States does not have a Free Trade Agreement.
The U.S. Department of Energy granted in December a 30-year license for Jordan Cove Energy to export LNG to countries that hold free trade agreements with the United States.
Jordan Cove plans to construct and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal on the north spit of Coos Bay to export LNG.
The LNG export terminal would include a berth for LNG carriers, cryogenic pipelines, four liquefaction trains, two LNG storage tanks, and a non-jurisdictional power plant.
The terminal would have the capacity to produce about six million metric tons of LNG per year, which is equivalent to the liquefaction of about 0.9 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas.
