Rio Bravo Pipeline Company, LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NextDecade Corporation, based out of The Woodlands, Texas.
About the Project:
The Pipeline System will include two, parallel, 42-inch-outside-diameter, 137.5-mile feed gas pipelines sharing a rightof- way, three 180,000-horsepower (at full build out) compressor stations, six mainline valve sites with two valves per location (one for each pipeline), four metering sites housing a total of six meter stations along the Pipeline System’s approximately 2.4-mile-long header system, as well as additional ancillary facilities.
The Pipeline System will commence in Kleberg and Jim Wells Counties, Texas and will terminate at the Delivery Point, which will be located adjacent to the proposed Rio Grande Terminal at the point shown on the maps attached in Exhibit A. The Pipeline System will be designed to allow for interconnection with various unaffiliated intrastate and interstate natural gas pipelines at multiple receipt points as described above, with a single primary delivery point. The typical operating pressure of the Rio Bravo header system is estimated to be 750 pounds per square inch gauge (“psig”). At full build-out, the Pipeline System will have a maximum allowable operating pressure of 1,480 psig and deliverability of up to 4.5 Bcf/d to the Delivery Point. The proposed in-service dates for the Pipeline System’s capacity will be phased to meet the required operational needs of the Rio Grande LNG facility.
Rio Bravo Pipeline is being developed in conjunction with NextDecade Corporation‘s Rio Grande LNG project. Due to the extended development and construction timeline of the LNG facility, the Rio Bravo Pipeline system will be developed and constructed to meet the required operational date for the Rio Grande LNG facility. For this reason, please note that at this time neither NextDecade Corporation nor Rio Bravo Pipeline Company, LLC are currently accepting unsolicited bids or offers of service as it relates to construction and/or management activities. At the appropriate time of the development, we will reach out directly to service providers and/or post an update on this website when such opportunities are available. We appreciate your patience and thank you for your interest.
