Texas LNG Brownsville LLC, a controlled subsidiary of Glenfarne Group LLC, and Enbridge Inc. have executed a pipeline transportation precedent agreement for the expansion of the Valley Crossing Pipeline (VCP) to deliver approximately 720 million ft3/d of natural gas to Texas LNG’s export facility for a term of at least 20 years.
Texas LNG is developing a 4 million tpy LNG export terminal in the Port of Brownsville, South Texas, US.
VCP consists of a 160-mile 42 and 48 in. dia. pipeline originating at Agua Dulce, a major Texas gas hub, and extending to the Port of Brownsville. A 10-mile lateral will be built to extend the pipeline to Texas LNG’s facility, along with the addition of compression facilities on the existing pipeline.
VCP’s pipeline header at Agua Dulce, a growing gas pricing and transportation hub in south Texas, interconnects with 10 major gas pipeline systems, providing access to abundant and competitively priced gas from the Permian and other major gas basins with a total receipt capacity of more than 7 billion ft3/d. The compression facilities at Agua Dulce will use electric motors which can be powered by plentiful Texas renewable energy, thus reducing CO2 emissions.
“Enbridge has been a tremendous supporter of Texas LNG from the project’s inception. We are pleased that we can leverage Enbridge’s leading natural gas pipeline expertise to safely transport responsible natural gas to our ‘green by design’ LNG facility,” said Vivek Chandra, Founder and CEO of Texas LNG LLC.
Langtry Meyer, Founder and COO of Texas LNG LLC, commented: “Our pipeline transportation agreement with Enbridge enables Texas LNG to deliver abundant, diverse, reliable, low-cost natural gas supply to our LNG customers around the world.”
“Enbridge is committed to the development and advancement of the Valley Crossing Pipeline as it serves Texas LNG and helps the facility meet global LNG demand,” said Bill Yardley, Enbridge’s Executive Vice President and President, Gas Transmission and Midstream. “We welcome the opportunity to expand our pipeline solutions in support of LNG efforts.”
Glenfarne Group, a developer, owner, and operator of energy transition infrastructure, is the managing member of Texas LNG.
Glenfarne’s Founder and CEO Brendan Duval said: “The execution of this agreement is the next of several important milestones Texas LNG will achieve as the facility moves toward a final investment decision. Our agreement with Enbridge helps us accomplish our strategy of delivering LNG to our own gas-consuming projects around the world and to third party customers. We thank Enbridge for their partnership.”
The agreement is subject to routine conditions precedent and other industry standard provisions.
