Contract let for Elba Liquefaction Project
Subsidiaries of Kinder Morgan Inc. have let a major contract to IHI E&C for the Elba Liquefaction Project, an LNG terminal planned at Elba Island near Savannah, Ga. (OGJ Online, July 16, 2015).
The contract covers engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and start-up of the 2.5 million-tonne/year facility. The Kinder Morgan subsidiaries are Elba Liquefaction Co. LLC and Southern LNG Co. LLC.
The $2-billion project will have 10 modular trains, based on proprietary Royal Dutch Shell PLC technology, connected to Kinder Morgan’s existing regasification terminal.
Shell, which sold its 49% interest in the project to Kinder Morgan last year, is the customer for all the liquefaction capacity.
The project awaits approval of the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
