The Elba Island LNG Terminal itself will remain in operation, the company said.

Kinder Morgan said other company assets in the path of the storm likely to experience partial or temporary shutdowns during the storm include its liquids and bulk terminals along the coasts of South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and Georgia.

Pipeline assets expected to remain operational include the Elba Express pipeline, the Southern Natural Gas system and the Plantation Pipe Line system.

Construction on the 2.5 billion mt/year Elba Liquefaction Project, which will add liquefaction and export capability to the existing LNG export terminal, began on November 1, 2016. Kinder Morgan expects the project's final units to come on line by early 2019.

The company's preparations for the arrival of the hurricane include securing buildings and warehouses, isolating power systems, and removing operations personnel to ensure their safety and to ensure that qualified personnel are able to resume operations following the storm.

Florence is currently a Category 2 hurricane and is expected to make landfall along the coast of North Carolina and South Carolina early Friday. -- Jim Magill, jim.magill@spglobal.com
