Document Number: 2016-31666
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-01-18
Agency: Department of Energy
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, sets forth a variety of provisions designed to improve energy efficiency.

Driftwood LNG seeks to export this LNG on its own behalf and as agent for other entities who hold title to the LNG at the time of export. The Application was filed under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA). Additional details can be found in the Application, posted on the DOE/FE Web site at: http://www.energy.gov/ fe/downloads/driftwood-lng-llc-fe-dkt-16-144-lng.
