Briefs — Trinity East Energy

The city of Dallas has asked the Texas Supreme Court to block a $200 million lawsuit by spurned driller Trinity East Energy LLC. The Fort Worth-based company sued in February 2014 after the Dallas City Council voted in 2013 to deny the company the permits it needed to drill on leases in the Barnett Shale region for which it had paid the city more than $19 million. Last February an appellate court ruled that the city must face the lawsuit, City of Dallas v. Trinity East Energy LLC [No. 05-16-00349-CV]. In asking the Texas Supreme Court to block the lawsuit, Dallas is arguing that it should be immune from the action as its decision to enter into the mineral leases with Trinity East was a governmental function and it was not acting in proprietary capacity.

Brief — NextDecade

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal developer NextDecade LLC has signed lease agreements with the state of Texas and city of Texas City for a nearly 1,000-acre site at Shoal Point for the potential development of an LNG export facility. Texas City owns almost 376 acres at Shoal Point, while the Texas General Land Office manages the adjoining 618 acres of state land. The Ports of Houston, Texas City and Galveston form the largest port complex in North America, and the NextDecade project could be the first LNG facility in the area, the company said. The Shoal Point site is east of a petrochemical industrial complex and 40 miles southeast of Houston. NextDecade is currently focused on Rio Grande LNG in South Texas, a 27 million tonne per annumproject that is advancing through the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission permitting process. The project at Shoal Point would benefit from NextDecade’s ability to replicate much of the design and engineering work done for Rio Grande LNG, a project that is expected to have one of the lowest construction costs of any LNG production facility in the world, the company said.
