Re:  Acceleration Request for NextDecade Corporation Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-274000)


Ladies and Gentlemen:


Pursuant to Rule 461 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, NextDecade Corporation hereby requests that the effective date for the Registration Statement referred to above be accelerated so that it will be declared effective at 4:30 p.m., Washington, D.C. time, on August 25, 2023, or as soon thereafter as is practicable.


It would be appreciated if, as soon as the Registration Statement is declared effective, you would so inform Ryan Maierson of Latham & Watkins LLP, our counsel, at (713) 546-7420. We appreciate your assistance in this matter.



Very truly yours,
