The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has granted the permit to Kinder Morgan to put in operation the first liquefaction train at the Elba Island liquefied natural gas export project near Savannah, Georgia.

The regulator granted the energy company’s request to commence service for liquefaction and export activities from the Balance of plant, terminal upgrade and moveable modular liquefaction system No.1 facilities, the notice reads.

The project is expected to have a total liquefaction capacity of about 2.5 million tonnes per year of LNG, equivalent to about 350 million cubic feet per day of natural gas.

The nearly $2 billion Elba liquefaction project’s EPC contractor is IHI E&C while the project is supported by a 20-year contract with the Hague-based LNG giant Shell.

The project is currently building a total of ten liquefaction units with a total capacity of 2.5 million tonnes per year of LNG.

Kinder Morgan owns 51 percent of the Elba Liquefaction company, the developer of the Elba liquefaction project, while the remaining 49 percent is owned by investment funds managed by EIG Global Energy Partners.
