Comments Close:

The Office of Fossil Energy of the Department of Energy has received an application from Fourchon LNG LLC 'requesting long-term, multi-contract authorization to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas in a volume equivalent to 260 billion cubic feet per year.' Fourchon will be exporting this liquefied natural gas to countries in, and not in, a free trade agreement with the United States. 'Fourchon LNG seeks authorization to export this [liquefied natural gas] from a proposed natural gas liquefaction facility to be located on Port Fourchon at Belle Pass in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. Fourchon proposes to site, construct, own, and operate this Facility... [which] will be developed in phases.' Fourchon is requesting authorization with non-free trade agreement countries for a term of 20 years. Fourchon 'is requesting this authorization on its own behalf and as agent for other entities who hold title to the natural gas at the time of export.' Protests, motions to intervene, notices of intervention, and written comments are invited.
