Kinder Morgan states construction continues on the nearly $2bn Elba Liquefaction Project with a total of six liquefaction units on site. The project is supported by a 20-year contract with Shell. Initial in-service is expected in the fourth quarter of 2018 (a delay of one quarter) with final units coming online by the third quarter of 2019.
The federally approved project at the existing Southern LNG Company facility at Elba Island near Savannah, Georgia, will have a total liquefaction capacity of approximately 2.5 million tonnes per year of LNG, equivalent to approximately 350 million cubic feet per day of natural gas.
Elba Liquefaction Company, a KMI joint venture with EIG Global Energy Partners as a 49 percent partner, will own 10 liquefaction units and other ancillary equipment. Certain other facilities associated with the project are 100 percent owned by KMI. Additionally, construction is continuing as planned on the Elba Express Modification Project, which will add upstream compression facilities on the Elba Express pipeline to provide feed gas for liquefaction.
