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.

NextDecade has assembled a team that includes experienced veterans in the LNG industry.
