The Elba Liquefaction Project will create an expansion facility to an existing operation for the production of liquefied natural gas. A proactive quality and HSE management process will encompass every aspect of its development from design and engineering through commissioning and start-up.

  • Modular construction

    Ten natural gas liquefaction units, known as Movable Modular Liquefaction System (MMLS) trains, together will process and liquefy natural gas and deliver a total capacity of up to approximately 2.5 million tonnes per annum. Construction of the plant will be conducted to reflect the modular nature of the facility. Commissioning will include the three first MMLS units, and then the seven additional MMLS units.

  • The economic benefits will be far-reaching.

    Construction of the project and later plant operation will generate major economic benefit for the local community, the state and the region. Construction and supply for the building of the project will create many jobs and utilize much local content including contractors, vendors, hotels, restaurants and other local suppliers. Subcontracting for site services will include local hire for labor, and utilization of many local vendors for consumables. Once in operation, the plant will generate jobs and tax revenue.

News Release, June 2, 2016

HOUSTON, June 2, 2016 – Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE: KMI) today announced that subsidiaries Elba Liquefaction Company, L.L.C. (ELC) and Southern LNG Company, L.L.C. (SLNG), have received authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for the Elba Liquefaction Project.

The approximate $2 billion project will be constructed and operated at the existing Elba Island LNG Terminal near Savannah, Georgia. As previously announced, the first of 10 liquefaction units is expected to be placed in service in the second quarter of 2018, with the remaining nine units coming online before the end of 2018. This project is supported by a 20-year contract with Shell.

KMI also announced today that Elba Express Company L.L.C. (EEC) and Southern Natural Gas Company, L.L.C. (SNG) have received from FERC Certificates of Public Convenience and Necessity for the EEC Modification Project and SNG Zone 3 Expansion Project, respectively. Together these projects total $306 million and include additional compression and related work for north-to-south capacity expansions on Elba Express Pipeline that will supply additional gas to industrials and utilities in Georgia and Florida and to Elba Island for liquefaction. Facilities for these pipeline projects are expected to be placed in service late in the fourth quarter of 2016.

In 2012, the Elba Liquefaction Project received authorization from the Department of Energy to export to Free Trade Agreement (FTA) countries. An application to export to non-FTA countries is pending, but is not required for the project to move ahead. The liquefaction project is expected to have a total capacity of approximately 2.5 million tonnes per year of LNG for export, equivalent to approximately 350,000 Mcf per day of natural gas.

Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE: KMI) is the largest energy infrastructure company in North America. It owns an interest in or operates approximately 84,000 miles of pipelines and approximately 180 terminals. The company’s pipelines transport natural gas, gasoline, crude oil, CO2 and other products, and its terminals store petroleum products and chemicals, and handle bulk materials like coal and petroleum coke.
