FINAL OPINION AND ORDER GRANTING LONG-TERM, MULTI-CONTRACT AUTHORIZATION TO EXPORT LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS BY VESSEL FROM THE SABINE PASS LNG TERMINAL LOCATED IN THE CAMERON PARISH, LOUISIANA, 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 Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC’s applications to export LNG from its Expansion Project have not demonstrated that the requested authorization will be inconsistent with the public interest, and finds that the exports proposed in those applications are likely to yield net economic benefits to the United States. DOE/FE further finds that Sabine Pass Liquefaction’s proposed exports should be authorized at a volumetric rate not to exceed the capacity of the facilities to be used in the proposed export operations and subject to other terms and conditions discussed below.
