Rio Grande LNG is expected to be the greenest LNG project in 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. Rio Grande LNG 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.

Rio Grande LNG is:

  • Targeting carbon-neutrality at Rio Grande LNG with the use of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology and proprietary processes
  • Providing a solution to reduce venting and flaring in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Shale
  • Working with sustainable producers seeking to supply responsibly sourced natural gas
  • Mitigating impacts to wetlands and wildlife
  • Using renewable energy for the LNG project’s electricity needs
  • Optimizing plant design through the use of ground flares, muted color schemes, etc.
