Elba III and Elba Express Projects
El Paso Natural Gas Company (EPNG), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kinder Morgan, Inc., and Southern LNG, L.L.C. (Southern LNG) are developing new gas supply to growth markets in the Southeastern United States. First, Southern LNG is expanding its Elba Island liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal near Savannah, Georgia. Second, Elba Express completed construction, on a new 190-mile interstate natural gas pipeline. With a total capacity of approximately 1.2 billion cubic feet per day, the new pipeline will increase natural gas transportation capacity from Elba Island to markets in Georgia and through the southeastern and eastern United states through interconnection with other pipelines.
Elba III Terminal Expansion Project
Southern LNG, L.L.C. continues to expand its Elba Island liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal to meet the increased need for new natural gas delivery infrastructure to serve growth markets in the Southeastern United States. The current Elba Island expansion is expected to add 8.4 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of storage capacity at the facility and 900 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of send-out capacity, doubling the storage and send-out capabilities of the facility. The initial phase included installation of a new 4.2 Bcf storage tank and modification of the docking facilities to accommodate new, larger delivery vessels. This phase of the expansion was placed in service in July 2010.
Elba Express Pipeline Project
Receiving supply from Elba Island, the new Elba Express pipeline runs northwest, interconnecting with pipelines and customers along the route. The pipeline placed in-service in March, 2010, consists of approximately 190 miles of 42-inch and 36-inch diameter, natural gas pipeline. An additional compressor station is expected to be constructed later, to increase capacity in 2014 or 2015. Click
