The DOE on Wednesday rejected Energy Transfer's request for a second extension of its multibillion-dollar LNG export project. It would consider another application if Energy Transfer is unable to meet its 2025 deadline, the DOE said.

"In light of the significant progress of Lake Charles LNG, we plan to continue to develop the project which may include the use of Lake Charles’ existing DOE export authorization," an Energy Transfer spokesperson told Reuters.
