The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has authorized Annova LNG to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) to nations where the United States does not have a free trade agreement (FTA), positioning Annova LNG to help coal-reliant nations diversify their energy supply with lower-carbon, U.S. produced natural gas.

Annova LNG signed a Precedent Agreement with Valley Crossing Pipeline, LLC (VCP), providing transportation for Annova LNG's total natural gas requirements at its 6.5 MTPA liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in Brownsville, Texas.

Annova LNG received its FERC authorization today from the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct and operate its mid-sized liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility located in Brownsville, TX.

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service issued its final biological opinion for the Annova LNG project in Brownsville, Texas this week, saying, "It is the opinion of the Service that the proposed construction of the Annova LNG project will not likely jeopardize the continued existence of the ocelot or Gulf Coast jaguarundi."
