On April 27, 2022, DOE issued Order No. 3978-E to Golden Pass LNG Terminal LLC (Golden Pass LNG) under Section 3(a) of the Natural Gas Act.  This Order authorizes Golden Pass LNG to export U.S.-sourced liquefied natural gas (LNG) to any country with which the United States has not entered into a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas, and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy (non-FTA countries).  A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was also issued in this Order.
