On May 17, the Department of Energy conditionally approved the second liquefied natural gas export terminal. The Freeport LNG Expansion and FLNG liquefaction LLC facility in Quintana, Texas is expected to export up to 1.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas every day for 20 years. A Federal Energy Regulatory Commission certificate is required before construction may begin. The agency previously approved the Sabine Pass facility located in Louisiana. 19 other LNG export terminal applications remain in the queue; these terminals would, if approved, export to non-free trade agreement countries.
