Texas LNG Brownsville LLC Moves Another Step Closer For LNG Export Project -- March 4, 2017

I track list of potential new LNG export facilities at this site. At that site, these links:
  • January 28, 2017: Exelon has applied for an LNG export facility permit for Brownsville, TX. 
  • Annova LNG: has proposed a six-train, 6-MTPA liquefaction/LNG export facility planned by Exelon Generation for Brownsville
  • Third Point LLC (a NYC-based investment fund) and Samsung Engineering are developing Texas LNG, a proposed 4-MTPA liquefaction/LNG export terminal in Brownsville
  • Rio Grande LNG, being developed by NextDecade LLC: up to six 4.5-MTPA liquefaciton trains and two LNG loading berths along the Brownsville Shipping Channel
Today, over at Rigzone, this appears to be Texas LNG (Third Point LLC - Samsung / NYC-based investment fund consortium):
Texas LNG Brownsville LLC announced Thursday that Samsung Engineering Co., Ltd. and KBR Inc. will provide pre-final investment decision (pre-FID) detailed engineering and post-FID engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for its proposed 4 million tonnes per annum (MTA) LNG export project in South Texas.
Samsung Engineering, a minority equity owner and technical partner in the mid-scale liquefaction project, has already completed the conceptual study, pre-front end engineering design (pre-FEED) and FEED, Texas LNG stated in a press release.
The project's design calls for constructing modular designed and prefabricated liquefaction trains using proven technology and standardized components in a controlled shipyard environment, the project developer continued.
Such an approach reportedly would lower overall project costs, reduce complex onshore civil construction works and minimize local onsite environmental impacts as well as commissioning costs during permanent installation on the deepwater Brownsville Ship Channel near the Gulf of Mexico.

  1. the EIA's Natural Gas Weekly Update for the week ending March 1, 2017 featured a 'news for the week' headline of "U.S. liquefaction capacity continues to expand" and it shows those trains currently under construction and their expected completion date under tab 2:

    you may want to update your LNG page with that info...
