US energy company Kinder Morgan has received approval by federal regulators to launch the final small-scale liquefaction unit at its nearly $2 billion Elba Island LNG plant in Georgia.
The US FERC granted an authorization to the firm on Thursday to place into service the seventh Elba Island liquefaction unit.
Kinder Morgan previously said the unit would be ready for operations on August 27.
With this train, Elba Island wile have ten moveable modular liquefaction system (MMLS) units in operation.
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.
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.
