Rio Grande LNG is located in an uncongested deepwater port with access to a skilled labor force and in close proximity to abundant, low-cost recoverable gas resources in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Shale.
Rio Grande LNG is located at the Port of Brownsville, a deepwater, industrial port with minimal existing vessel traffic – significantly lower than other project locations
The Permian Basin, alone, holds 600 Tcf of associated gas, 90 percent of it with break-evens below $0.* Rio Grande LNG will provide producers a long-term baseload demand center and natural gas flow assurance while helping to eliminate unnecessary flaring. Global LNG customers gain access to an abundant resource that will produce significant quantities of low-cost natural gas for decades. *Source: Enverus
