The LNG will be utilized by U.S. corporations and/or exported pursuant to Strom’s export applications submitted to the U.S. Department of Energy-Fossil Fuel Section, and in accordance with section 3 of the NGA. Strom contends that since this is a portable system and not a LNG terminal as defined by the NGA and not a facility as defined by law, that no FERC permit is required. Strom contends that any permit should be issued by the State Commission in Florida and/or local jurisdictions. Strom also contends that it is a third party marketer of a product regulated by FERC under the NGA. Any person desiring to intervene or to protest this filing must file in E:\FR\FM\04APN1.SGM 04APN1
