Larine Moore, Allyson C. Reilly, Office of Natural Gas Regulatory Activities, Office of Oil and Gas Global Security and Supply, P.O. Box 44375, Washington, DC 20026-4375. (202) 586-9478. (202) 586-9394.End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
DOE's FE is delegated the authority to regulate natural gas import and export under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act of 1938, 15 U.S.C. 717b. Persons seeking to import or export natural gas are required to file with FE an application containing basic information about the scope and nature of a proposed import or export. Most applications are approved automatically and the orders granting approval require those authorized to report import and export activity on a periodic basis. The data collected is used to monitor the North American natural gas trade and facilitate market analysis.
Over the years many two-year, blanket authorizations have been issued with no start date and terms to be triggered by reporting activity. There has been no reported activity for some of these outstanding authorizations, and more often than not FE attempts to contact authorization holders have been unsuccessful. FE is vacating these authorizations in order to remove unused authorizations from the FE database and improve information collection and trade monitoring.
In accordance with DOE policy and pursuant to section 3 of the Natural Gas Act, it is ordered that the authorizations listed in the attached Appendix are vacated effective the date of the issuance of this notice.Start Signature
