  • The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has granted Jordan Cove LNG (JCLNG) authority to import natural gas from Canada via pipeline up to 566 Bcf/year (1.55 Bcf/day) for a 25-year term to JCLNG’s proposed LNG export terminal at the Port of Coos Bay, Ore. JCLNG has already obtained Canadian National Energy Board authority to export the gas to the United States. DOE’s order can be found here. JCLNG has also obtained DOE authority to export LNG from its proposed terminal to nations with a U.S.-Free Trade Agreement requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas. JCLNG’s DOE application to export LNG to non-FTA nations is pending before DOE.
