IMPORT/EXPORT

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)

Generally, the DOE requires that, prior to the export of natural gas to Canada, a permit or authorization for gas exports from the United States into Canada be obtained. After receipt of the permit or authorization, on an ongoing basis (usually monthly), the DOE may require the permit holder to report the quantities of gas exported, the locations of export, and the value of the natural gas exported. This reporting is usually accomplished through the use of Excel files and email submissions. More information is available on the DOE website.
