Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (ASX:LNG) (OTCMKTS:LNGLY) (LNGL or the Company) has received Notice of Intent (NOI) from the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that the agency will prepare a supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the incremental 0.8 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) production capacity increase application for the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Magnolia LNG LLC (Magnolia). FERC's NOI only pertains to the capacity uplift for Magnolia from 8.0 mtpa to 8.8 mtpa and does not affect Magnolia's existing FERC Order and Notice to Proceed (NTP) for its original 8.0 mtpa capacity.

LNGL Managing Director and CEO Greg Vesey commented: "LNG Limited is committed to building the safest low-cost and most efficient LNG export facility on the U.S. Gulf Coast. We thank FERC for their previous diligence on Magnolia and are ready for the continued engagement as the agency performs analysis on Magnolia's capacity increase best answered through the preparation of a supplemental EIS."

LNGL previously received notice from the United States Department of Energy (DOE) that the agency has granted authorization for Magnolia to expand its export capacity to 8.8 mtpa of LNG to countries that have free trade agreements (FTA) with the United States.
