Shipping from LNG George West facility to free-trade nationsShipping from LNG George West facility to free-trade nationshttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=129752016-04-26T05:00:00Z2016-04-26T19:20:00Z

​​CORPUS CHRISTI AREA - The U.S. Department of Energy's order, issued April 13, gives Flint Hills Resources permission to use shipping containers to export LNG (liquefied natural gas​) produced at Stabilis Energy's facility in George West, Live Oak County.

Flint Hills Resources—a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries Inc.—is authorized to export 3.62 billion cubic feet of natural gas per year to free-trade agreement nations over the next 20 years.

Opened in March 2015, the Stabilis Energy liquefaction plant is capable of producing 120,000 gallons of LNG per day and storing up to 270,000 gallons of it.

Although Flint Hills Resources does not have any long-term supply or export contracts, the DOE order shows that the company plans use the Stabilis Energy plant's existing infrastructure to load the LNG into tanker trucks or containers and then have it shipped from export terminals along the Texas Gulf Coast.

The DOE order clears the way for Flint Hills Resources to export LNG to free-trade nations such as Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jordan, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua, Oman, Panama, Peru, Singapore and South Korea.
