Rio Grande LNG receives acceptance for FERC pre-file request

On March 20, NextDecade LLC submitted an official request to the US 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. On March 23, NextDecade 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 multibillion-dollar land-based LNG export project located on a 1,000-acre site along the Brownsville Shipping Channel in Brownsville, Texas. NextDecade's proposal includes plans for up to six liquefaction trains 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.
