Rubio Praises LNG Export Project Approval

Sep 19, 2019 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) praised the Federal Energy Regulatory Committee’s (FERC) approval of a new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export project by Eagle LNG in Jacksonville, Florida. This decision will allow for the siting, construction, and operation of a new liquefaction, storage, and export terminal facility on the St. Johns River.
 
“Today’s approval of this important LNG project at JAXPORT is great news for North Florida and our state’s growing trade relationships around the world,” Rubio said. “It’s also another step towards weaning our Caribbean neighbors off of more expensive and environmentally damaging fuel oil for electricity generation. Our outdated energy export laws are contributing to an ongoing reliance on Venezuelan oil in the region when we should instead be promoting Florida-produced LNG. I introduced the Small Scale LNG Access Act to correct this situation, and it’s time for Congress to pass this bill.” 
 
Earlier this year, Rubio joined Senators Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and John Kennedy (R-LA) to reintroduce the Small Scale LNG Access Act, legislation to codify an existing rule by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to expedite the approval of natural gas exports equal to or less than 51.1 billion cubic feet per year.
