DOE approves Gulf LNG exports

Mississippi project to have capacity of up to 11.5 million tonnes per annum

Federal regulators on Wednesday authorised the Gulf LNG facility in Mississippi to export liquefied natural gas to nations with which the US does not have a free trade agreement (FTA).

An order issued by the US Department of Energy (DOE) permits Gulf LNG to export up to 1.53 billion cubic feet per day from the proposed facility to non-FTA nations and nations with which trade is not prohibited under US law or policy.

DOE earlier approved Gulf LNG for exports to nations with which the US does have a free trade agreement.

Gulf LNG is 50% owned by pipeline operator Kinder Morgan and is expected to have a capacity of up to 11.5 million tonnes per annum with two liquefaction trains.

Kinder Morgan has not set a target FID date for the project.
