As things continue to move forward in regards to the efforts by three Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) companies to construct LNG export terminals along the Port of Brownsville, so too, have efforts to oppose the projects.
Most recently, Rio Grande LNG has begun entertaining more serious discussions for the construction of a pipeline — Rio Brave Pipeline — that would supply its proposed LNG export facility. The company announced on May 24 that it had started an ‘open season’ seeking binding commitments for the pipeline’s construction.
With possible massive negative effects on the environment, wildlife, and even recreational life, a rather large group of citizens have risen up against the proposed LNG complex. Save RGV from LNG is a group that has been going town to town for over a year in an attempt to raise awareness among the people LNG would most directly impact.
On Monday evening, the group gathered in Los Fresnos for their first official meeting focused solely on the impact the Rio Bravo Natural Pipeline would have on the Valley.
