June 26–To signal that its proposed liquefied natural gas project at the Port of Brownsville is moving forward, Texas LNG announced on Monday that it has in hand three important official letters that help clear the way for development.
Texas LNG, one of three companies that have announced plans for LNG export terminals at the port and are awaiting approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, said it has received “over the past few months” letters from the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
The Coast Guard letter confirms that the Brownsville Ship Channel is suitable for Texas LNG’s anticipated marine traffic in terms of safety and security, while the DOD letter notifies the company that, in the government’s determination, the impact on military training and operations will be minimal.
