Kinder Morgan puts another Elba LNG unit in service

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

The US FERC approved on Monday Kinder Morgan’s request to place into service the tenth Elba Island liquefaction unit.

With this train, Elba Island will have nine 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 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.

Th 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.
