August 8, 2012

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a Final Opinion and Order granting Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC (Sabine Pass) authorization to export LNG from its LNG terminal in Cameron Parish, La., to nations not having a Free Trade Agreement with the United States. The order requires exports to commence within seven years of DOE’s initial order in the case, which was issued May 20, 2011. The order rejects Sierra Club’s contention that FERC’s Environmental Assessment (EA) for Sabine Pass’s LNG export project was inadequate. And, based on FERC’s EA, DOE issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) concluding that granting Sabine Pass export authority will not have a significant effect on the environment. The order and FONSI can be found on DOE’s website under Docket No. 10-111-LNG.
