Facts Prevail as Regulators Approve LNG Export Facility, Highlighting DOE Dysfunction

Today, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved a development permit for Calcasieu Pass 2 (CP2), a Liquefied Natural Gas export facility proposed for southwestern Louisiana. 

Below is a statement that can be attributed to me, Craig Stevens, spokesman for the GAIN Coalition and former senior advisor to U.S. Energy Secretary Sam Bodman:

“FERC’s decision to approve the development of the CP2 LNG export facility is a win for Louisiana workers, American energy security, and our allies abroad who increasingly rely on U.S. LNG exports.

By approving CP2’s permit, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) upheld its mandate to be a non-political arbiter – making this decision based on facts and the law. The same can’t be said for President Biden’s decision to block the Department of Energy (DOE) from granting permits for LNG export projects in an attempt to win over TikTok-style environmental activists. The Department of Energy should lift the current ban on LNG export projects, which create thousands of local jobs and reduce global emissions by exporting clean American energy worldwide.”
