Document Number: 2014-25143
Type: Rule

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE or the Department) regulations require applications to export natural gas from the United States to identify ``all the participants in the transaction, including the parent company, if any, and identification of any corporate or other affiliations among the participants.'' In many cases, either before or after a final export authorization has been issued, ownership or management of the exporting entity changes hands, resulting in a change in control (CIC). This document sets forth procedures that will apply when applicants to import or export natural gas or those entities that have already received an import or export authorization undergo changes in control.
