This Amendment No. 1 (“Amendment No. 1”) amends the Schedule 13D originally filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on August 3, 2017 (as amended, the “Statement”), and is filed by the Reporting Persons with respect to the common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (“Shares”), of NextDecade Corporation (the “Issuer”).  Capitalized terms used herein but not defined shall have the meaning given to them in the Statement.
ITEM 4.
PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION
Item 4 is amended and supplemented as follows:
As disclosed on the Issuer’s Current Report filed with the Commission on September 8, 2017, the Issuer received notice from the Staff of the Listing Qualifications Department of Nasdaq indicating that the Issuer was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rules 5550(a)(3) and 5515(a)(4), requiring a minimum number of round lot holders for the Issuer’s Shares and warrants, respectively. On October 16, 2017, as part of the Issuer’s plan to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Issuer released one percent (1%) of the Shares held by certain of the Reporting Persons from certain restrictions contained in the lock-up agreements executed in connection with the Merger, as further described in Item 6 of this Amendment No. 1. As disclosed by the Issuer, the Issuer may release up to a total of five percent (5%) of the Shares held by the Reporting Persons from such lock-up agreement restrictions. The Reporting Persons anticipate selling the number of Shares that the Issuer releases from such lock-up agreement restrictions, for the sole purpose of assisting the Issuer in its plan to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rules.
On October 11, 2017, the Issuer filed with the Commission a prospectus for the registered sale of certain of its securities by the selling stockholders named in the prospectus, including up to 19,520,068 Shares that may be sold directly or indirectly by the Reporting Persons.

As of the date hereof: SPV XIX directly holds 3,824,542 Shares, which represents approximately 3.60% of the Outstanding Shares; SPV XXII directly holds 496,755 Shares, which represents approximately 0.47% of the Outstanding Shares; VND Partners directly holds 4,813,805 Shares, which represents approximately 4.53% of the Outstanding Shares; and Capital Partners Offshore Master directly holds 10,384,966 Shares, which represents approximately 9.77% of the Outstanding Shares.
