NextDecade and ENN Execute 1.5 MTPA LNG Sale and Purchase Agreement

NextDecade - Press release

NextDecade Corporation announced today the execution of a 20-year sale and purchase agreement with ENN LNG (Singapore) Pte Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ENN Natural Gas Co., Ltd. for the supply of liquefied natural gas from NextDecade’s Rio Grande LNG export project in Brownsville, Texas.

Under the SPA, ENN LNG will purchase 1.5 million metric tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG indexed to Henry Hub on a free-on-board basis. The LNG
supply will be from the first two trains at RGLNG with the first train expected to start commercial operations as early as 2026.

“We are pleased to announce this long-term LNG SPA with ENN, a premier Chinese energy company. As one of China’s largest private companies,
ENN is a major participant in China’s energy market, and we look forward to a successful, long-term relationship with ENN,” said Matt Schatzman,
NextDecade’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “This SPA underscores the strength of NextDecade’s differentiated offering. The commercial
momentum at RGLNG is accelerating and we believe the company is well placed to benefit from the strengthening LNG market.”

Zheng Hongtao, President of ENN Natural Gas Co., Ltd said, “This agreement secures additional volume for our LNG portfolio and helps ensure we
can meet the growing demand for secure, flexible, and cleaner energy for our customers in the future. The signing of this SPA reflects ENN’s goal of
promoting the global energy transition and is of significance given RGLNG’s low GHG emissions profile relative to other LNG supply sources. We look
forward to working with NextDecade in the years to come.”

Assuming the achievement of further LNG contracting and financing, NextDecade anticipates making a positive final investment decision (“FID”) on a
minimum of two trains of the Rio Grande LNG export project in the second half of 2022, with FIDs of its remaining three trains to follow thereafter.
