US energy company Kinder Morgan has made progress at the Gulf LNG project proposed for the Jackson County, Mississippi.

The company has been awarded a final environmental clearance with the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issuing a final environmental impact statement (EIS) on Wednesday.

The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed project, with the mitigation measures recommended in the EIS, would have some adverse environmental impacts, however, these impacts would be avoided or reduced to less-than-significant levels.

Gulf LNG proposes to construct and operate onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction and associated facilities at its existing LNG import terminal.

Gulf LNG would construct the terminal expansion on a 46-acre site adjacent to the existing terminal.

The terminal expansion would include two LNG trains with 5 million tons per annum capacity and a maximum capacity of more than 5.4 mtpa, a truck loading/unloading facility to unload refrigerants and to load condensate produced during the gas liquefaction process, new in-tank LNG loading pumps in the existing LNG storage tanks to transfer LNG through the existing transfer lines to LNG marine carriers.

The two LNG storage tanks are full containment tanks, each with a capacity of 160,000 cubic meters. Each tank is outfitted with three in-tank pumps with a total unloading capacity of 12,000 cubic meters per hour.

In addition to liquefying natural gas and exporting LNG, the expanded terminal would continue to have the capability to regasify imported LNG.
