The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) needs to speed up the permitting process for pending LNG export projects, eight Republican US senators wrote in a letter to FERC Chairman Kevin McIntyre on Tuesday.

The senators asked about staffing resources at the commission and what steps FERC is taking to ensure there are sufficient staff and consultants available to expeditiously complete the review of pending applications.
