NextDecade Corporation announced today that its subsidiary, Rio Grande LNG, LLC, has issued $1.115 billion of senior secured notes in a private placement. These senior secured notes will accrue interest at a fixed rate of 6.58 percent. The proceeds from the notes will be used to reduce outstanding borrowings and commitments under Rio Grande LNG’s existing term loan facilities for Phase 1 at the Rio Grande LNG Facility.

The senior secured notes will be amortised over a period of 18 years, beginning in September 2029, with a final maturity in September 2047. The senior secured notes rank pari passu with Rio Grande LNG’s existing senior secured financings.

Including this transaction, the Company has now refinanced a total of over $1.85 billion of the original $11.1 billion Rio Grande LNG term loan facilities since a positive final investment decision was reached on Phase 1 at the Rio Grande LNG Facility in July 2023.
