Texas LNG Project Overview

Texas LNG has selected Gulf LNG Tugs of Texas, LLC (Gulf LNG Tugs), a consortium of Suderman & Young Towing Company, Bay-Houston Towing, and Moran Towing Corporation to build, deliver and operate tugboats under a long term agreement to assist LNG carriers arriving at the coming LNG export facility.

In line with Texas LNG’s “Green by Design” approach, the tugboats “will be among the most modern, low-emissions tugboats available to serve a facility of Texas LNG’s size,” as Texas LNG claims.

Texas LNG is a 4 MTPA LNG export facility to be constructed in the port of Brownsville, Texas and a subsidiary of global energy transition leader, Glenfarne Energy Transition, LLC.

Texas LNG expects to close its project financing later this year with construction commencing shortly thereafter.

Brendan Duval, chief executive and founder of Glenfarne Energy Transition, said: “The Texas LNG team undertook a comprehensive process to identify a marine service provider that not only matches our commitment to environmental stewardship, but also provides our customers with reliable, cost-effective marine services.

“We are pleased to have Gulf LNG Tugs on board as a partner and look forward to the jobs and local content they will bring to both Texas LNG and the local Rio Grande Valley community.”

Gulf LNG Tugs in a joint statement commented that “Gulf LNG Tugs is excited to be providing marine services in a long-term partnership with Texas LNG. We are proud to be the exclusive tug operator for LNG vessels to yet another successful LNG project in the Port of Brownsville and look forward to expanding our operations in the port and our presence in the Rio Grande Valley community.”
