DOE to revise approval process for LNG exports

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Howland, D-13th, applauded the Department of Energy’s decision to revise the liquefied natural-gas approval process.

The department announced the intention to revise the process for reviewing facilities that have applied to export liquefied natural gas to nonfree-trade agreement countries.

Under the current process, the department reviews and assesses applications based on chronological order in which they were submitted, and then grants those they deem worthy a “conditional authorization.”

The department no longer would issue conditional commitments granting the export of liquefied natural gas to nonfree-trade agreement countries ahead of the completion of an environmental review, under a procedural change proposed by the department Thursday. The proposal will be subject to a 45-day public-comment period.

Last year, Ryan co-sponsored an amendment to the Energy and Water Appropriations bill asking the department to speed up the LNG export-approval process and increase transparency.

All you frackers wanting cheap energy must compete with countries who don't comply with free trade agreements while the soaring profits get exported out of town.

And Tim Ryan is helping ensure that only misery "trickles down".

More sickening than a well full of tainted water...
