Correction

In the fourth paragraph of a story published Sept. 23, 2013 “U.S. West Coast LNG Seen Leading Canadian Terminal Projects” (seeDaily GPI,Sept. 23), the status of the two LNG plants in Oregon was incorrectly stated. Neither of the plants has received authorization from the U.S. Department of Energy for exports to non-FTA (free trade agreement) countries. That paragraph should read: As likely candidates to beat the BC pack of terminal and pipeline schemes Prentice pointed to two Oregon projects: Jordan Cove and Oregon LNG. Both have received authorization for exports to the limited number of countries that have a free trade agreement (FTA) with the United States. They are among at least 13 U.S. projects still seeking export authorization to non-FTA countries.NGIregrets the error.
