    US DOE grants conditional approval to Oregon LNG to export LNG

    US Department of Energy/Oregon LNG

    The Energy Department has conditionally authorized LNG Development Co. LLC (Oregon LNG) to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) to countries that do not have a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States, from the Oregon LNG Terminal in Warrenton, Oregon, near where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean.

    The Oregon LNG application was next in the order of precedence and review of the application was initiated before the Department issued the recent proposed procedural change.  Subject to environmental review and final regulatory approval, the facility is conditionally authorized to export at a rate of up to the equivalent of 1.25 billion standard cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of natural gas, for a period of 20 years.

    Construction of the facility is slated to begin in late 2015 with completion in early 2019, assuming all FERC and applicable state and local approvals are in place.

    As part of the review process, the Department of Energy took into consideration indications from Oregon LNG that the predominant amount of natural gas supply for export from the facilities would come from Canada, not the US.
