Texas LNG begins FERC pre-filing process for Brownsville LNG project

On March 9, Texas LNG Brownsville LLC became the first LNG export facility proposed for the Brownsville, Texas, area to initiate the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) pre-filing process, kicking off the regulatory review for the proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Brownsville. 

Texas LNG is planning to build the Brownsville project in two phases, each with LNG production of 2 million tonnes per year (MTA). Pending FERC's final approval to construct the project, Phase 1 is expected to begin production in 2020. 

In addition, Texas LNG has executed an amendment to its Option to Lease Agreement with the Brownsville Navigation District in Cameron County to upgrade to a larger and more optimal 625-acre site with deepwater frontage to the Port of Brownsville shipping channel. The new site, located 5 miles from the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico on the north side of the channel, facilitates construction, will allow safer reduced LNG tanker navigation within the channel, and also allow the project to plan for future expansion.
