Department of Energy Approves Magnolia LNG Export Terminal

Liquefied Natural Gas Limited, December 2, 2016

Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (LNGL or the Company) has announced that the US Department of Energy (DOE) has granted LNGL’s Magnolia LNG Project authorization to export liquefied natural gas from the proposed facility in Lake Charles, Louisiana, USA to countries with which the United States has not entered into a free trade agreement (non-FTA approval). The proposed four-train export terminal will have an annual production capacity of at least 8 million metric tons of LNG. On April 15, 2016 the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted Magnolia LNG permission to site, construct, and operate the LNG terminal in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana for the liquefaction and export of natural gas. 

Greg Vesey, LNGL Managing Director and CEO, advised, “Our Magnolia project team is very pleased to have successfully received this final piece of the regulatory framework enabling our Magnolia LNG project to export US-produced natural gas to the global energy market. We recognize and appreciate the hard work and timely efforts put in by the DOE and other cooperating agencies in reaching this decision. Going forward, we are well underway in progressing on the final offtake milestones to enable us to move this leading energy efficient, innovative and low cost project into the construction and operations phases.”
