NextDecade reduces train plans for its Rio Grande LNG project in Texas

NextDecade of Texas recently announced that it will cut back its plan of six trains at its planned Rio Grande LNG project down to five trains, as the company continues to optimize its plans and reduce its environmental impact.  The company is striving to reach its previously established total capacity with a smaller footprint in both physical and environmental terms.

Original plans called for six trains with the individual capacity for 4.5 million tons per year (MMtpy) to combine for a total of 27 MMtpy.  Nextdecade now believes that improvements in technology will allow the same total capacity to be reached through five trains at 5.4 MMtpy apiece. This new plan will allow NextDecade to reduce costs with shorter construction time and reduced emissions with one fewer train to build.

Earlier in 2020, NextDecade delayed the final investment decision for this Brownsville, Texas project into the 2021 timeframe.  Construction completion has previously been reported to be expected during 2023.
