Annova LNG has signed a deal with the South Texas Electrical Cooperative (STEC) for 405 MW, representing the total electric transmission needs for its natural gas export project in Brownsville, USA.
Annova LNG plans to build a liquefied natural gas export facility with a capacity of 6 million tonnes per year at the Port of Brownsville, Texas.
The company said on Monday that Magic Valley Electric Cooperative, a member of STEC, would be the sole provider of electric energy to power the facility.
Omar Khayum, Annova LNG CEO, said, “The Annova LNG project has a significantly lower environmental impact on the Rio Grande Valley than other proposed projects due to its use of electrical power instead of natural gas to drive its liquefaction compressors.
According to the company, commercial operations of the export facility will begin in 2024.
