It is extremely peculiar that only $LNG appears to be affected by this rule.

It also seems peculiar in light of the shutdown of the Freeport export facility seekingalpha.com/... , which appears to have been part of the cause of the fall in NG price.

I suspect getting the exemption is a 50-50 tossup between the admin's promises to send Europe more gas and relying on Cheniere to do it, and the fact that every appointee in the admin is a soldier in its war on carbon energy.
Now LNG is deemed to be critical any additional pollutage will be waived

"Neither Maisano nor Cheniere would comment to Reuters on why the company used a turbine design at its facilities that could not easily accommodate equipment that might be needed if the regulatory stay on gas turbines were lifted."

I'm surprised the stock isn't down more on this.

Wait until local residents file their lawsuits.

Biden’s leftest handlers that truly know nothing in life but their academia careers will not approve the the exemption. So be it! Let European nations burn coal to compensate and stay warm this chilly 🥶 winter. Wait, global warming. They should be fine.
Biden will shut them down then blame them for not making LNG and causing prices to increase. The same leftist talking points.

I’m thinking Biden will say “no”.
That's government. One day your equipment is legal and paid for, the next day it's illegal. Then you spend millions of dollars (again). No transition period, no compensation.
@DrT Or maybe Cheniere could have used a less toxic turbine design.

You know like all the other LNG exporters since they aren't affected by the change.
@martyr1777 Or maybe they used the technology of the time as they're the oldest LNG exporter.

@DrT "No transition period, no compensation."

We're STILL in the non-existent transition period for another month....
