Texas LNG Summary

Texas LNG Schematic

Texas LNG is a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facility to be constructed at the Port of Brownsville in Brownsville, South Texas, close to the US – Mexico border and the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico.

Texas LNG’s 625+ acre site is strategically located on the Port of Brownsville's deepwater ship channel. Texas LNG will have a planned capacity to produce up to 2 million tonnes per annum (MTA) permit capacity of LNG from approximately 300 MMcf/d of feed gas sourced from the US natural gas system (Phase 1). Phase 2, to be developed at a later date, will increase capacity by additional 2 MTA permit capacity.

Texas LNG is seeking to export LNG to Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and non-FTA markets. Texas LNG has received its authorization to export to FTA markets and is planning to receive is authorization for non-FTA markets during the term of the FERC application process.

Preliminary engineering (pre-FEED) was completed in October 2014 and detailed engineering (FEED) commenced in November 2014 and completed during 1Q 2016.  Detailed Engineering will commence in late 2018, depending on pre-FID fundraising efforts.

All FERC prefiling draft Resource Reports were submitted by November 2015 and FERC formal application phase began in March 2016. FERC issued the Schedule for Environmental Review (“SER”) in August 2018 anticipating Final Environmental Impact Statement by March 15, 2019 and the Federal Authorization Decision Deadline by June 13, 2019.

Upon receipt of FERC permit in 2019, Texas LNG plans to reach Final Investment Decision (FID) in late 2019, contingent on many factors such as completing the required commercial agreements, securing all necessary permits and approvals, obtaining financing and incentives, and other factors associated with commercial viability of the investment. Construction will begin after FID and first LNG exports commencing in 2023/2024 (Phase 1). Phase 2 exports expected to commence one or two years later, estimated in 2025/26.  

Texas LNG is one of the few LNG export projects with access to the prolific Permian basin gas.  The price differential between Permian gas and other US Hubs, such as Henry Hub in Louisiana, is significant, resulting in substantial cost savings for Texas LNG customers.
