NextDecade Triggers Filing Process For Rio Bravo Pipeline

Posted on

NextDecade LLC submitted an official request to the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to enter the pre-filing process for its Rio Grande Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project and associated Rio Bravo Pipeline. NextDecade LLC received notification from FERC of acceptance into the pre-filing process and was assigned docket number PF15-20-000.
  Rio Grande LNG, a wholly owned subsidiary of NextDecade, is a multi-billion dollar land-based LNG export project located on a 1,000-acre site along the Brownsville Shipping Channel in Brownsville, TX. NextDecade’s proposal includes plans for up to 6 liquefaction trains utilizing proven, reliable, safe, and efficient technology, with a nominal output capacity of 4.5 million tons of LNG per train a year. The facility will be constructed in phases timed to meet market demand. In addition, the proposed 129-mile Rio Bravo Pipeline will supply the facility with its feed-gas, connecting the facility to the highly liquid Agua Dulce natural gas market hub.
