Thank you for visiting Rio Grande LNG. We want to take the opportunity to thank the over 200 businesses and 300 attendees that joined us at the 5 workshops held between April 12 and 14 in Brownsville, South Padre Island, Harlingen and McAllen! We were thrilled by the attendance and hope that all those who came found the events beneficial.
For those of you that were unable to attend, we will look to host additional events later on this year. In the meantime, please check out the information on this page and make sure to register your business with us below. Please check back soon as we will be updating this page soon to reflect the information shared at the workshops.
Rio Grande LNG is committed to maximizing the local benefits our project can bring to the Rio Grande Valley and the counties within our project, which is why we want to partner with as many local businesses as we can to supply our vendor and 3rd-party contractor services.
If you are interested in having your details registered with the project, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page. Currently we are accepting registration from those interested in providing sub-contract / vendor work.
The pre-qualification process is typically the most difficult part for many smaller businesses. In 2017, we will host additional workshops to help businesses progress through this process. If you feel you are ready to go through the pre-qualification process with Rio Grande LNG’s engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, CB&I, please visit https://cbi.materialink.com, register, complete the required documents and submit your package. Please make sure that you have registered with CB&I and Rio Grande LNG to make sure you have the best chance at winning future contracts.
