Texas LNG announced that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued an Order on Remand to the project following the completion of an additional social cost of carbon and environmental justice analysis.
The Order on Remand includes two modified mitigation requirements regarding air monitoring and emergency response communications that Texas LNG will incorporate into its execution plan. Texas LNG expects to make a final investment decision (FID) this year and begin commercial operations in 2027.
Texas LNG’s “Green by Design” approach is strategically designed to avoid emissions rather than minimizing or mitigating them. By using renewable energy to power the entire facility and drive Texas LNG’s electric motors, the project eliminates most CO2 emissions, with less than half of a typical LNG export project, making it one of the lowest-emitting liquefaction facilities in the world.
