From Reuters:

The U.S. Department of Energy approved ConocoPhillips’ application to export about 40 billion cubic feet of natural gas from its Kenai liquefied natural gas export terminal in Alaska over the next two years starting Feb. 19.

The Kenai facility was the first LNG export facility in the United States. Most of the gas exports from Kenai have gone to Japan since the plant entered service in 1969.

In a few weeks, the fist LNG export terminal in the lower 48 states is expected to enter service at Cheniere Energy Inc’s Sabine Pass facility in Louisiana.

The federal approval will allow ConocoPhillips to export gas to any country the United States has a free-trade agreement with or any other country with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law.
