Kinder Morgan subsidiaries awarded a contract for engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and startup of its Elba Island LNG export facility to IHI E&C.
Located near Savannah, GA, the $2 billion project will consist of 10 trains using Shell proprietary technology. The new units will connect to Kinder Morgan’s existing re-gasification terminal at Elba Island, which will be modified to receive from the new liquefaction facilities.
Modifications to the existing Elba facilities will include compression for vapor handling and new pumps for loading the LNG on vessels for export.
Shell is the customer for all of the liquefaction capacity and ship-loading services being developed by the project. When completed, the Elba Liquefaction Project will process and liquefy a capacity of 2.5 mtpa of LNG.
“We are excited about this next step for our future LNG export project and look forward to working with IHI E&C to bring it to fruition,” said Norman Holmes, president of Kinder Morgan’s Southern Region Pipelines.
