The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a notice of schedule for the environmental review of the Elba liquefaction project.
FERC revealed in its notice that it plans to issue the environmental assessment of the Elba liquefaction project on February 5, 2016, with the 90-day federal authorization decision deadline set for May 5, 2016.
Elba Liquefaction and Southern LNG are planning to construct natural gas liquefaction facilities to support the production and export of up to 350 million cubic feet of LNG per day (2.5 million tons per year) at the existing Elba LNG terminal, in Chatham County, near Savannah, Georgia.
The activities planned at the Elba Island terminal include the installation of up to ten movable modular liquefaction system units, a flare system, modifications to the terminal piping, modification and construction of various buildings, and truck transport of natural gas liquids.
To facilitate the supply of natural gas to the Elba LNG Terminal for liquefaction, Elba Express is proposing to add compression along its existing Elba Express pipeline in Georgia.
