Freeport LNG Expansion, L.P. and FLNG Liquefaction, LLC (together, FLEX) filed an answer to Sierra Club’s motion to intervene and protest regarding the FLEX application to export LNG filed with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). FLEX states that (1) Sierra Club’s protest raises general LNG export policy issues and fails to state a claim of interest specific to FLEX’s application, (2) contrary to Sierra Club’s claims, DOE may grant approval of FLEX’s application conditioned on FERC’s environmental review of the project facilities, and (3) Sierra Club has failed to prove that the FLEX proposal is inconsistent with the public interest. FLEX’s answer can be found on DOE’s website under Docket No. 11-161-LNG.
