Technical and Economic Support Contract for the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management

In this engagement, Enegis provides technical, economic, as well as regulatory and compliance support to the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (DOE FECM). Enegis staff provide DOE FECM support to collect and analyze U.S. natural gas (with specific emphasis on U.S. LNG exports by vessel) export and import data, and to help manage DOE FECM’s statutory LNG export program.

The collected data detail U.S. companies, foreign suppliers, and trading partners such as Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, as well as 40+ countries of destination for U.S. LNG by vessel exports. These data are entered into DOE’s proprietary database for the publication of data reports and the analysis of export and import trends. The results of Enegis’ data collection and validation are published in monthly analyses and reports for client review and public readership in the private sector, U.S. and Foreign Governments, and non-profit communities.

Additionally, Enegis provides regulatory, legal, and policy consulting services in support of DOE FECM’s LNG export program. This work includes the preparation and management of key DOE FECM deliberative and decisional documents docketed for each LNG export applicant or authorization holder, as well as environmental review and analysis and additional coordination between DOE FECM’s Office of Regulation, Analysis, and Engagement and DOE’s Office of General Counsel. Enegis also provides support work in managing the daily operations of the DOE FECM largely virtual docket room, collecting and processing requests for natural gas authorizations as well as other legal documents and filings associated with the U.S. LNG export program. In its work for DOE FECM, Enegis helps to ensure that DOE’s policy goals and approaches are on sound legal footing, and that the logistics of the program’s administration run smoothly.

Finally, Enegis has also provided input to DOE’s Quadrennial Technology Review (QTR), which examines the most promising research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) opportunities across energy technologies to effectively address U.S. energy needs. The QTR identifies the important technology RDD&D opportunities across energy supply and end-use in working towards a clean energy economy in the United States.
