Calgary — Pieridae Energy has received approval from the US Energy Department to export natural gas to countries without a free trade agreement with the US, from a planned LNG facility in Nova Scotia in Eastern Canada, the company said Monday.

The approval was received February 5, and is required because the facility exports natural gas that orginates in the US.

Last year, the company received approval to export to countries with an FTA from the US Energy Department, along with an export license from Canada's National Energy Board to export 10 million mt/year of LNG and import up to 1.7 Bcf/d of feedstock gas for its planned Goldboro LNG project.

No comments were immediately available from Halifax-based Pieridae. But the company's director of project development, Mark Brown, said in September that receipt of the non-FTA approval would allow Pieridae to sell LNG to its primary customer Uniper Global Commodities (formerly E.ON Global Commodities of Germany), which is acting as the base customer.



The LNG project will entail the construction of two trains each of 5 million mt/year, and Uniper has already committed to a binding agreement for 5 million mt/year, while talks are ongoing with other customers "mainly European" for the remaining volumes, he said at the time.
