Kinder Morgan to place another Elba LNG unit in service

US energy company Kinder Morgan is seeking approval to launch another small-scale liquefaction unit at its nearly $2 billion Elba Island LNG plant in Georgia.

The company has requested an authorization from US FERC to place into service the ninth Elba Island liquefaction unit on July 27.

Earlier this month, Kinder Morgan sought and won an approval by the regulator to launch the eighth unit.

The energy firm placed this unit in commercial operation on July 17.

Elba Island has currently seven moveable modular liquefaction system (MMLS) units in operation as the seventh train is still in commissioning mode.

Once in full production, the plant will have in total ten trains with a capacity of 2.5 million tonnes per year.

Kinder Morgan expects to place all of the units in service before the end of the summer this year.

The US firm owns 51 percent of Elba LNG while EIG Global Energy Partners holds a 49 percent stake.

The export project has a 20-year contract with the Hague-based LNG giant Shell.
