Texas LNG announced today that it began the pre-filing process with the FERC
Houston Texas based Texas LNG Brownsville announced today that it has begun the pre-filing process with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), putting it one step closer to the expected start-up date of its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, according to a company press release. Texas LNG’s project is the first export facility proposed for the Brownsville, Texas area to initiate the FERC pre-filing process and start the regulatory review.
Texas LNG is planning to build the Brownsville project in two phases, each with LNG production of 2 million tons per annum (MTA). Pending the FERC’s final approval to construct the project, Phase 1 is expected to commence production in 2020. Vivek Chandra, CEO of Texas LNG said, “We now join a select group of projects that have entered this phase of project development.”
Moving to a different location
The company also announced that it executed an amendment to its Option to Lease Agreement with the Brownsville Navigation District in Cameron County to upgrade to a larger and more easily accessible site in the Port of Brownsville shipping channel. The new site is 625 acres, located approximately 5 miles from the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico on the north side of the channel, allowing for reduced LNG tanker navigation. The new site will also allow for future expansions, according to the company.
Langtry Meyer, COO of Texas LNG said, “Our new larger 625 acre site, which will place us as the closest proposed Brownsville LNG project to the Gulf of Mexico, enhances our design and expansion flexibility and minimizes transit times of LNG export tankers to the benefit of potential offtakers and investors.”
