South Texas LNG Project To Optimize Number of Trains, Reduce Emissions

NextDecade is implementing evolving technology to reduce the number of trains for its planned 27 mtpa Rio Grande LNG (RGLNG) project in Brownville, Texas, and reduce CO2 emissions. The company said RGLNG will utilize five LNG trains, instead of its original plan for six LNG trains which would have produced 4.5 mtpa each.

Technologies selected and filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in 2015 and 2016 have evolved over the 5-year permitting period, and LNG trains have become more efficient, the company said. It added that multiple optimizations for RGLNG have been identified, which will result in environmental and community benefits, including a 21% reduction in CO2 emissions, a shorter construction timeline, a reduced facility footprint, and an expected reduction in roadway traffic.

RGLNG is one of a handful of LNG projects moving forward in North America as COVID-19 and low energy prices forced companies to reduce costs, cut workforce, and delay timelines. Final investment decision on the project is expected in 2021.
