Downeast LNG is a 3 million ton LNG export project with the nearest access to the stranded northeast Marcellus gas reserves of any proposed LNG export project. The project also has access to western Canadian gas. Both sources of gas can be transported on the existing pipeline system to the project. In 2014, Downeast LNG successfully completed the FERC review process for its originally proposed LNG import project. The project initiated a new FERC filing in July 2014 as a bi-directional LNG project and in August 2014 filed its DOE export request for Free-Trade and Non-Free Trade countries. In March 2015 it received its FTA authorization from the DOE. The facility will also have the capability of importing LNG if market conditions warrant additional gas supply in the future.
