It's been a long time coming for Dominion Resources (NYSE: D  ) , but its Cove Point LNG facility was finally approved by the Departement of Energy to export liquified natural gas to non-Free Trade Agreement countries. It now joins a group of Gulf Coast facilities that will ship nearly 10% of current natural gas production overseas. While it might be the smallest approval yet, it adds some geographic diversity since it is based on the East Coast. Its approval is welcomed news for ConocoPhillips  (NYSE: CVX  ) which holds a 50% stake in Freeport LNG Development's general partner (see ownership flowchart). Freeport LNG has expansion plans submitted for approval and is nearing the top of the list. Tune in below for more details.

Record oil and natural gas production is revolutionizing the United States' energy position. Exportation of natural gas is a natural extension of this in a free-market economy, but exporting companies won't be the only ones to benefit. For this reason, the Motley Fool is offering a comprehensive look at three energy companies set to soar during this transformation in the energy industry. To find out which three companies are spreading their wings, we invite you to check out the special free report, "3 Stocks for the American Energy Bonanza."

Editors note: in the video, Chevron is referenced as having interest in Freeport LNG. Viewers, please insert ConocoPhillips into that statement. Additionally, America's Energy Advantage, of which Dow Chemical is a member, issued this press release shortly after Dominion's announcement.
