On February 10, 2020, DOE issued Order No. 4492 to Rio Grande LNG, LLC (Rio Grande LNG) under section 3(a) of the Natural Gas Act.  This Order authorizes Rio Grande 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 Record of Decision (ROD) was also issued in this Order.
