Freeport-McMoRan Energy LLC FE Dkt. No. 13-26-LNG


The Office of Fossil Energy gives notice of receipt of an Application filed February 22, 2013, by Freeport-McMoRan Energy LLC (FMMRE), seeking a long-term multi-contract authorization to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) up to the equivalent of 1,176 billion cubic feet of natural gas per year to Free Trade Agreement (FTA) countries and non-FTA countries.  Authorization is for a 30-year period commencing on the earlier of the date of first export or ten years from the date the authorization is issued. FMMRE proposes to export LNG from the proposed Main Pass Energy Hub Deepwater Port, located 16 miles offshore of Louisiana to any country that has, or in the future will have, the capacity to import LNG via ocean-going carrier, with which the United States has, or in the future enters into, an FTA requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas.  FMMRE proposes to also export LNG from the proposed Main Pass Energy Hub Deepwater Port, located 16 miles offshore of Louisiana to any country that does have, or in the future will have, the capacity to import LNG via ocean-going carrier, with which the United States does not have an FTA requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas. A federal register notice will not be issued for the FTA portion of this application.  A federal register notice will be issued for the non-FTA portion of this application. Order 3290 for FTA portion was issued on 05/24/13.
