The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has issued the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) for Texas LNG export facility located in the Port of Brownsville, Texas. 

“The FEIS is a result of FERC’s comprehensive environmental, safety and security reviews, which analyzed publicly available data, federal and state agency input, stakeholders’ comments, and information provided by Texas LNG Brownsville,” the commission said in its notice.

The FEIS is the final step in the environmental review process leading towards the June 13, 2019, federal authorization decision deadline and anticipated FERC approval.

Vivek Chandra, Co-Founder and CEO of Texas LNG, said, “as we head towards final investment decision (FID), we look forward to substantive discussions with potential LNG customers to secure binding agreements over the next few months.”

“We look forward to receiving FERC approval in the next few months which is one of the important steps to allow construction to begin and LNG production to commence by 2024,” Langtry Meyer, Co-Founder and COO of Texas LNG stated.

The Texas LNG project would be capable of exporting up to 4 million tons of the chilled fuel per year, at full buildout.
