Agency seeks formal consultation on LNG impact


BROWNSVILLE, Texas – A federal agency is looking to begin the formal consultation process on the impacts of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in the Rio Grande Valley.

According to federal documents, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service now has the information required to discuss the impacts the Rio Grande LNG Project would have on the endangered ocelot and the jaguarundi.

The consultation process is part of planning stages meant to identify potential species conflicts. Rio Grande LNG is one of three LNG companies that are looking to settle at the Port of Brownsville.
