US LNG Export Approval Process and Project Implications

US LNG Export Approval Process and Project Implications

Report summary

In Q3 2011 the US Department of Energy (DOE) pressed the pause button on processing of LNG export licence applications to countries with which the US does not have a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and undertook two studies to examine the potential implications of future LNG exports from the US. This triggered numerous public statements and lobbying by politicians/interest groups plus speculation by industry players on how the DOE might handle the applications piling up on its desk.
