IHI E&C awarded Elba Island EPC contract

Kinder Morgan, Inc. and IHI E&C has jointly announced that Kinder Morgan subsidiaries, Elba Liquefaction Company, L.L.C. and Southern LNG Company, L.L.C.is awarded IHI E&C a contract for the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and startup of Kinder Morgan’s natural gas liquefaction project at Elba Island, near Savannah, Georgia.

The USD 2B Elba liquefaction project will consist of 10 MMLS trains using Shell proprietary technology. The new units will connect to Kinder Morgan’s existing re-gasification terminal at Elba Island, which will be modified to receive LNG from the new liquefaction facilities. Modifications to the existing Elba facilities will include compression for vapour handling and new pumps for loading the LNG on vessels for export.

When completed, the Elba liquefaction project will process and liquefy a total capacity of approximately 2.5 MT per annum of LNG.

Initial engineering, procurement and construction planning are being performed by IHI E&C’s Houston office while awaiting approval of the project by the FERC. In addition to project modularization, execution will feature significant instrumentation and electrical engineering, logistics and interface management, procurement, supply-chain expertise, and large scale construction.
