The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has authorised Texas LNG’s air permit, allowing the construction and operation of an LNG export facility in the Port of Brownsville, Texas.

Receiving the TCEQ Air Permit represents another significant regulatory milestone for Texas LNG and follows the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission authorising Texas LNG to site, construct, and operate the facility, announced late last year.

“We appreciate the hard work and effort from TCEQ and are pleased to have reached this important achievement that paves the way for a 2021 final investment decision and construction of an LNG facility consistent with all air emission regulations,” said Vivek Chandra, Founder and CEO of Texas LNG. 

“Though current LNG markets are unusual in terms of pricing and supply dynamics, Texas LNG is confident that its low-cost flexible commercial model, and realistically-size production volumes will be key differentiators, ideally suited for global customers when operations being in 2025.”

“Texas LNG is committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner, including use of electric motors instead of conventional gas turbine compressors to minimise air emissions, making the facility one of the world’s cleanest LNG liquefaction plants,” said Langtry Meyer, Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Texas LNG
