The Challenges

IHI E&C was awarded 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 Elba Liquefaction Project will consist of 10 Movable Modular Liquefaction System (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 liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the new liquefaction facilities.  Modifications to the existing Elba facilities will include compression for vapor handling and new pumps for loading the LNG on vessels for export.
