Elon Musk is planning to use natural gas from a Rio Grande Valley site to power the SpaceX Starships.

Bloomberg reports the company wants to drill its own gas wells for fuel through a subsidiary called Lone Star Mineral Development. SpaceX has purchased mineral rights near the company owned Boca Chica launch site in Cameron County.

SpaceX has also acquired an 806-acre lease previously drilled by Sanchez Energy. Lone Star also bought two offshore rigs, which Bloomberg says may be used as landing pads for SpaceX’s reusable rockets.
