ORDER CONDITIONALLY GRANTING LONG-TERM MULTI-CONTRACT AUTHORIZATION TO EXPORT LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS BY VESSEL FROM THE COVE POINT LNG TERMINAL TO NON-FREE TRADE AGREEMENT NATIONS

Based on a review of the complete record and for the reasons set forth below, DOE/FE has concluded that the opponents of the DCP Application have not demonstrated that the requested authorization will be inconsistent with the public interest and finds that the exports proposed in this Application are likely to yield net economic benefits to the United States. DOE/FE further finds that DCP’s proposed exports on behalf of other entities should be conditionally authorized at a volumetric rate not to exceed the capacity of the facilities to be used in the proposed export operations and subject to satisfactory completion of environmental review and other terms and conditions discussed below.
