U.S. Changes Feds Natural Gas Export Reviews

Fuel Fix reports that "the Obama administration on Thursday proposed dramatically changing the way it is reviewing applications to widely export natural gas, with a plan that effectively moves more commercially advanced projects to the front of the line."  

"The newly proposed procedure, announced by Assistant Energy Secretary Christopher Smith in a blog post, would replace a two-year-old process that has been widely criticized. Energy companies and their allies on Capitol Hill have complained the existing procedure is akin to a 'deli counter' approach that rewards export projects for getting in line quickly at the expense of facilities more likely to break ground."
