How big is the LNG export gold rush? Here are maps of dozens of approved, proposed, and potential LNG export terminals, one of them even including Carib’s FE-authorized Martin County LNG export facility that FERC never seems to remember and Sabal Trail never talks about.
Update 2015-02-23: Now with the rest of the maps.
In addition to the approved LNG import and export terminals, there are more on this FERC map of Proposed North American LNG Export Terminals, including ones in Lake Charles (2 and 7), Sabine Pass (6), Plaquemines Parish (8 and 11), and Cameron Parish (13) Louisiana, Lavaca Bay (4) and Sabine Pass (9), Texas, Elba Island (5), Georgia, and Jacksonvile (14), Florida, as well as Coos Bay (1) and Astoria (3), Oregon, plus two in Kitimat (15 and 17) and one on Douglas Island (16), British Columbia. One of those proposed BC LNG export terminals is where Spectra Energy proposes to build not one but two pipelines. And even that ain’t all.
See this FERC map of Potential North American LNG Export Terminals, which includes a bunch more in Louisiana and Texas, as well as the infamous one in Goldboro (14) and two others in Nova Scotia, as well as one in Quebec (28) and eleven in British Columbia.
Yet you have to go to the American Petroleum Institute to pick up one FERC seems conveniently never to remember, in Martin County, Florida, the red (I) on this map:

Here’s the popup text for that red (I) in Martin County, FL:

The LNG export boom may be going bust anyway.
How about we call off the whole fracked methane boondoggle and power Florida with sun, wind, and water?
