Sabine Pass Liquefaction (SPL) filed an application with the U.S. Department of Energy to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas in an amount of up to the equivalent of approximately 314 Bcf of natural gas per year to nations with or without a Free Trade Agreement with the United States.

SPL currently has long-term authorization from DOE/FE to export 803 Bcf per year of LNG from the Liquefaction Project to FTA and non-FTA nations.
Additionally, SPL has longterm authorization from DOE/FE to export an additional 101 Bcf per year and 88.3 Bcf per year of LNG to FTA nations, subject to the respective terms in its LNG Sale and Purchase Agreements with Total Gas & Power North America and Centrica.
