Kinder Morgan allowed to start another Elba Island gas liquefaction train

Kinder Morgan Inc. companies received federal authorization to place another one of its batch of small natural gas liquefaction trains in service at its LNG export terminal on Elba Island near Savannah, Ga.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission notified Elba Liquefaction Co. LLC and Southern LNG Co. LLC on Jan. 16 that they could start service on their "moveable modular liquefaction system" No. 2. The train joins others that have been authorized for service out of the 10 proposed units at the terminal. Kinder Morgan's press office declined to confirm that this is the fourth train to go online.

The Elba Island terminal exported its first LNG cargo Dec. 13, 2019. The developers of the export project have worked through delays to get all liquefaction units online and the terminal up to its full LNG production capacity of about 2.5 million tonnes per annum. This capacity will make the facility one of the smallest of the U.S. LNG export terminals in operation, but one of only two on the East Coast, along with Dominion Energy Inc.'s Cove Point terminal in Maryland.

The terminal contributed to an increase in feedgas moving to U.S. terminals in December 2019. Flows to the terminal during the month averaged about 0.08 Bcf/d and ended the month at nearly 0.11 Bcf/d. (FERC docket CP14-103)

Trains at other U.S. LNG export terminals are also going into service. Freeport LNG Development LP announced Jan. 17 that it has begun commercial operations on a second train at its terminal on the Texas coast.
