Dismissed by FERC for lack of payment? No worries, Strom, Inc.’s other LNG export application with the FE is still active, and Strom asked to move the location, too, to Crystal River. Just east on Power Line Road from Duke Energy’s permantly-closed Crystal River nuke and proposed new gas plant. Strom says it would get the fracked methane from either FGT or Sabal Trail, which is either an intrastate or an interstate pipeline depending on which of Strom’s sentences you believe. No, Strom’s CEO’s name is not Loki; it’s just pronounced that way, and spelled Lokey.
Remember in July FERC dismissed Strom’s Starke LNG application for lack of fee payment. The Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy (FE) apparently has no such scruples, since its STROM INC, FE DKT. NO. 14-56-LNG was updated 29 September 2014 with Strom Inc. – Amendment to Application to Reflect New Location of the Plant,

Re: STROM Inc. FE Docket No. 14-56-LNG Amendment to Application of STROM Inc. For Long-Tenn Authorization to Export Liquefied Natural Gas to Free Trade Agreement countries
Dear Mr. Anderson:
On 4/13/2014, STROM inc. (“STROM”) filed an application for the Long-Tenn Authorization to Export Liquefied Natural Gas to Free Trade Agreement Countries Docket Number 14-56~LNG (“riginal FTA Application”). During the period of time the application has been pending, more strategic property has become available to STROM and STROM has since engaged In a purchase agreement for the property located in Citrus County Florida as well as neighboring properties1. It is STROM’s intention to make this new location at 6700 N, Tallahassee Rd, Crystal River, FL 34428 the primary site where we will produce Liquid Natural Gas for Long Term Export to Free Trade Agreement Countries. This location can receive natural gas by short lateral pipeline from either Florida Gas Transmission Company’s current Interstate transmission pipeline or the proposed Sabal Trail Transmission Intrastate Pipeline. Accordingly, STROM wlshes to update the site location information provided in the Original FTA Application as described in detail below, and in accordance with 10 C.F.R. 590.204(a),
In the Original FTA Application the location of the liquefaction site was to be property of +/- 70 acres located in Sec 33 Township, 65 Range, 22E Bradford County.
STROM requests to amend the Original FTA Application to reflect the new location of the plant for production of Liquid Natural Gas for Long Term Export to Free Trade Agreement Nations. This new property has +/- 15 Acres and is located at 6700 N. Tallahassee Rd, Crystal River, FL, 34428. Natural gas can be supplied to this property via lateral intrastate pipeline from the Florida Gas Transmission Company’s current interstate pipeline and/or the proposed Sabal Trail Transmission Interstate pipeline in the future,
The remainder of the Origlnal FTA Application will remain unchanged. The LNG will be sourced from, manufactured, and transported in the same manner as described in the Original FTA Application. The volume of 28.21 BSCF per year will also remain unchanged.

PS: I’m not sure who first discovered this Strom location move; I first saw it when Debra Johnson posted it on facebook.
