Kinder Morgan Inc. and its partner, EIG Global Energy Partners, reported the commercial in-service of Unit 7, the last of 10 Movable Modular Liquefaction units of the approximately $2 billion Elba Liquefaction project.

Now in full commercial operation, the Elba Island Liquefaction facility has a total capacity of approximately 2.5 million tonnes per year of LNG for export, which is equivalent to approximately 350 million cubic feet (MMcf) per day of natural gas.

The project is supported by a 20-year contract with Shell LNG, who is subscribed to 100% of the liquefaction capacity.

Kinder Morgan Natural Gas East Region President Kimberly Watson said: “The development of this facility was a tremendous undertaking, and we are extremely pleased to have this project in service. The team coordinated with our customer and local, state and federal agencies to put in service a new technology for modular liquefaction units. Its functionality as a bi-directional import/export facility makes it ideal for the changing flow patterns that can occur from time to time.”

EIG is a 49% partner in the project.
