Kinder Morgan close to launching all Elba LNG units

US energy company Kinder Morgan is to launch the final 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 seventh Elba Island liquefaction unit on August 27.

Elba Island has currently nine moveable modular liquefaction system (MMLS) units in operation out of ten.

To remind, Kinder Morgan did not launch the units in sequential order. The tenth train entered commercial operations earlier this month.

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

Kinder Morgan previously said it expected to place all of the remaining units in service before the end of the summer.

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.
