Energy Dept. backs Texas LNG export plan

FILE - In this April 15, 2008 file photo, the Excelsior arrives at the Freeport LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) terminal in Houston. The Energy Department has given conditional approval to a Texas company that wants to export liquefied natural gas, the second LNG export project the Obama administration has approved as it faces a wave of export requests. The permit would allow Freeport LNG Expansion L.P. to export up to 1.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from its terminal near Freeport, Texas, south of Houston. It is subject to environmental review and final regulatory approval. (AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Steve Campbell, File)
