Picture of the Day: Elba Island LNG Terminal, USA

BG Group posted a picture of the company’s Elba Island LNG import facility.

BG Group’s LNG and gas marketing activities in the USA include Elba Island and Lake Charles LNG import facilities.

The Elba Island LNG terminal is built on an 840-acre private island near Savannah, Georgia, US.

Built in 1978, the terminal is spread over 140 acres of the island. Southern LNG, a subsidiary of El Paso Corporation, owns and operates the terminal.

The terminal receives natural gas from Trinidad and Tobago and Egypt and supplies the re-gasified LNG to consumers of Southern LNG. It was put on standby in the 1980s and re-commissioned in 2001 as the demand for LNG increased and gas imports from Canada were projected to decrease.

El Paso Pipeline Partners recently announced that Shell US Gas & Power has given notice to Elba Liquefaction Company to move forward on Phase II of Elba Island LNG Terminal.
