SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Commonwealth requests long-term, multi-contract authorization to export LNG from its proposed LNG Facility in a volume up to 9.5 million metric tons per annum (mtpa), which it states is equivalent to approximately 441.4 Bcf/ yr of natural gas. Commonwealth requests authorization to export the LNG to: (i) Any nation with which the United States has entered into a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas (FTA nations), and (ii) any other nation with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy (nonFTA nations). This Notice applies only to the portion of the Application requesting authority to export LNG to non-FTA countries pursuant to section 3(a) of the NGA, 15 U.S.C. 717b(a). DOE/FE will review Commonwealth’s request for a FTA export authorization separately pursuant to section 3(c) of the NGA, 15 U.S.C. 717b(c). Commonwealth requests the authorization on its own behalf and as agent for other entities that will hold title to the LNG at the point of export. Commonwealth is seeking a 20-year term for the non-FTA authorization, commencing on the earlier of the date of first commercial export from the LNG Facility or seven years from the issuance of the requested authorization. Additional details can be found in Commonwealth’s Application, posted on the DOE/FE website at: https:// www.energy.gov/fe/downloads/ commonwealth-lng-llc-fe-dkt-no-19-134lng. DOE/FE Evaluation In reviewing Commonwealth’s request, DOE will consider any issues required by law or policy. DOE will consider domestic need for the natural gas, as well as any other issues determined to be appropriate, including whether the arrangement is consistent with DOE’s policy of promoting competition in the marketplace by allowing commercial parties to freely negotiate their own trade arrangements. As part of this analysis, DOE will consider the study entitled, Macroeconomic Outcomes of Market Determined Levels of U.S. LNG Exports (2018 LNG Export Study),1 and DOE/ 1 See NERA Economic Consulting, Macroeconomic Outcomes of Market Determined Levels of U.S. LNG Exports (June 7, 2018), available at: https://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2018/ E:\FR\FM\26NON1.SGM 26NON1
