TCEQ approves Texas LNG's air permit

21 May 2020

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) ruled that it would authorize the issuance of an air permit to Texas LNG Brownsville LLC (Texas LNG), allowing the construction and operation of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility to be located in the Port of Brownsville, Texas.

Receiving the TCEQ Air Permit will represent another significant regulatory milestone for Texas LNG. On November 22, 2019, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) authorized Texas LNG to the site, construct, and operate the facility. Texas LNG has previously received authorizations from the United States Department of Energy (DOE) to export U.S.-sourced LNG to any country with which trade is not prohibited by United States law or policy.

Texas LNG looks forward to receiving the signed order and final permit from the TCEQ.

Texas LNG's strengths include access to low cost, abundant Permian Basin feed gas, use of third-party pipeline infrastructure, efficient modular construction design, and transparent competitive pricing structure. Besides, the 4 MTA size of the facility fills an important need from LNG customers seeking smaller contracted volumes to diversify their gas supply portfolio.
