NextDecade’s Rio Grande LNG project will provide the world access to cleaner energy and enhance energy security around the world. LNG exports can positively impact the global environment by promoting the use of low cost, clean burning natural gas, which emits far fewer pollutants than coal, oil, and other fossil fuels.
NextDecade is committed to environmental stewardship, reducing our operational footprint, reducing emissions, and minimizing habitat disturbance. Our projects will meet or exceed all environmental and other regulatory requirements, which include strict standards governing impacts on air, land, water, and wildlife. The rigorous regulatory process and ongoing oversight by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) ensure these standards are met and maintained in accordance with the law. The FERC issued an order for Rio Grande LNG in November 2019 – access the order here.
