"DOE Approves Second Gas Export Terminal in Oregon"

"The Department of Energy (DOE) gave conditional approval to a second Oregon facility to export liquefied natural gas to countries that don't have a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the U.S.

Earlier this year the department conditionally authorized the planned Jordan Cove gas export terminal in Coos Bay, Ore., making it the seventh export facility to get approval from the administration.

The facility approved Thursday is the Oregon LNG Terminal in Warrenton, and is authorized to export up to 1.25 billion standard cubic feet per day of natural gas for 20 years. It is the eighth facility the DOE has conditionally approved to export to countries without a trade agreement."
