Texas LNG files full application with feds

BROWNSVILLE — Houston-based Texas LNG, one of three companies with plans to build a liquefied natural gas export terminal at the Port of Brownsville, announced it has filed a full application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission requesting authorization to construct and operate its facility.

Texas LNG, Annova LNG and NextDecade LNG submitted their “pre-filing” applications in March 2015. The full application is the next step in the process. Texas LNG has a 625-acre lease option at the port.

The company’s long-term plans call for a facility capable of shipping 4 million metric tons of LNG a year, making it the smallest of the three projects. The first phase of the project would have a capacity of 2 million metric tons a year.

Annova and NextDecade, when fully built out, would have total annual capacities of 6 million and 27 million metric tons, respectively.
