The corresponding decision concerns the Golden Pass and Magnolia terminals.

The U.S. Department of Energy approved an increase in exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from two terminals under construction in the states of Texas and Louisiana.

“The Ministry of Energy today issued two long-term orders authorizing the export of an additional 0.5 billion cubic feet (more than 14 million cubic meters) LNG per day. The order permits export <…> [additional volumes of LNG] to any country to which supplies are not prohibited by US laws or policies,” the US department said in a distributed press release. According to the ministry, “fuel supplies from the United States, including LNG, continue to play a key role in global energy security, especially because of” the situation in Ukraine.

The relevant decision of the Ministry concerns the Golden Pass terminals in Texas and Magnolia in Louisiana. According to the Associated Press, the launch of the first is expected in 2024, and the second in 2026.
