LNG Allies: Sierra Club Files Brief in LNG Case

Appeals Court Briefed in Fifth Challenge to non-FTA Authorizations
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit received a brief (Apr. 10) from attorneys representing the Sierra Club in the organization’s fifth challenge (Case No. 16-426) of a DOE LNG decision. (This one to authorize Cheniere’s Sabine Pass Liquefaction to export the maximum amount of LNG it can produce to non-Free Trade Agreement nations.) Oral arguments were heard by this same court on the first LNG case (Sierra Club v. DOE, Case No. 15-1489) on Feb. 02 (Freeport LNG case). A decision on the Freeport case could come this summer. Lisa Tonery (Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe) is the lead attorney representing Sabine Pass. As respondent, DOE has until May 10 to file its response.
