US LNG export project developer NextDecade Corporation and Mubadala Investment Company, have reached an agreement for Mubadala to purchase $50 million of NextDecade’s common stock in a private placement.

NextDecade will issue the common stock to Mubadala at a price of $6.27 per share, the company said in its statement on Thursday.

Mubadala’s investment further strengthens NextDecade’s capital position as the company continues to develop its Rio Grande LNG project, the largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) export solution linking Permian Basin associated gas to the global LNG market, the statement reads.

Khalifa Al Romaithi, Mubadala’s executive director, midstream, said, “We strongly believe that the Rio Grande LNG project is optimally positioned to provide a highly competitive export route for the abundant gas resources of the Permian Basin and a compelling commercial proposition for LNG customers, Permian producers and NextDecade shareholders alike. Our investment also reflects Mubadala’s positive outlook on the global gas market and the growing role of gas in the energy transition.”

As part of its investment in NextDecade, Mubadala will receive one seat on NextDecade’s board of directors. Mubadala will also have the right to contribute a certain amount of project-level capital upon the final investment decision of NextDecade’s Rio Grande LNG project.
