Rio Grande LNG, LLC and Rio Bravo Pipeline Company, LLC are special purpose entities created to develop and operate the Terminal and Pipeline, respectively. The development effort is still in its early stages, therefore Rio Grande and Rio Bravo have yet to establish local offices outside of The Woodlands, TX; however, as project development progresses, we will open a local office and hire numerous employees on a long-term basis who will live and work in the area of the Projects.
Rio Grande and Rio Bravo are subsidiaries of NextDecade LLC, which currently provides staffing support for Rio Grande and Rio Bravo. NextDecade LLC has assembled a team that includes experienced veterans in the LNG industry. These include: Kathleen Eisbrenner – CEO and founder, formerly CEO and founder of Excelerate Energy, which developed and led the floating LNG Regasification industry; René van Vliet – Chief Operating Officer, formerly Shell Gas and Power Singapore/The Hague – Vice President Global LNG; Shaun Davison – Senior VP Development & Regulatory Affairs, formerly Excelerate Energy – Director of Development & Special Projects; and Stephan Huisman – Technical Director, formerly Royal Vopak – Director of LNG Technology.
