Texas LNG Terminal
United States

Texas LNG is a liquified natural gas (LNG) export terminal that will be built in the port of Brownsville in Texas. Together with two other planned terminals at Brownsville it will lead to 5.1 billion cubic feet of gas being liquefied and exported every day. The terminals transform the coastal landscape of the Rio Grande Valley into an industrial export hub for LNG. Gas, mostly derived from fracking, is piped to the coast, supercooled and compressed into liquid. LNG export terminals are capital-intensive, financially risky and environmentally destructive. The impacts of these facilities span people and ecosystems across the continent: communities around the terminal site, communities at the point of extraction and communities along the pipeline routes. Moreover, the project is completely incompatible with a climate-stable future as well as the Paris Agreement.

Update: On 12 October 2017, BNP Paribas (the financial advisor of this project) announced it will exclude unconventional fossil fuels from its portfolio. This means that it will not finance Texas LNG, which is a serious setback for the project.
