Kinder Morgan to launch Elba LNG train

US energy company Kinder Morgan is 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 eighth Elba Island liquefaction unit on July 13.

Elba Island has already six moveable modular liquefaction system (MMLS) units in operation while 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 previously said it expected to place all of the remaining units in service before the end of the summer this year.

Worth mentioning here, the terminal has earlier this year shut three trains following a fire in a mixed refrigerant compressor at the second unit.

Kinder Morgan 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.
