Golden Pass advances LNG export permitting

Golden Pass Products LLC has taken its first step toward seeking US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission permission to build the 15.6 million-tonne/year LNG export terminal it plans at Sabine Pass, Tex. (OGJ Online, Aug. 27, 2012).

The company, a venture of Qatar Petroleum International and ExxonMobil Corp., which operates an LNG import facility at Sabine Pass, has submitted to FERC a formal request to start prefiling for the proposed project.

It has received Department of Energy approval to export LNG to countries with which the US has free-trade agreements and earlier this month announced signing of a commercial framework agreement for sale of all the proposed facility’s output.
