Goldboro LNG Project Gets Final DOE Approval – Good for Marcellus

Yesterday we told you that the Bear Head LNG project in Nova Scotia, Canada received DOE approval to export U.S. natural gas from their facility to non-U.S. free trade agreement counties (see Bear Head LNG Exports Get Final DOE Approval – Good for Marcellus). Today we bring you the news that another Nova Scotia LNG project, Goldboro LNG, has also received approval from the DOE to export natgas to non-free trade agreement counties.
