The second liquefaction train at the Elba Island LNG terminal is ready for starting operation. Elba Liquefaction Company (ELC) filed for the start-up of the LNG train to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on 22nd local time and is requesting the commission to approve the operation no later than November 26th.

The Elba Island LNG production project plans to build ten units each with a liquefaction capacity of 250,000 mt per annum at an existing LNG import terminal. The unit that has completed preparation work is No. 3 unit, which would be the project's second unit in-operation, ELC explained.

The company started commercial operation of No. 1 unit on September 30th this year and has been advancing preparation work for No. 2 and No. 3 units. One of the parent companies Kinder Morgan is considering to start four units by this year end and the remaining six by the first half of 2020.

ELC is a joint venture of Kinder Morgan and EIG Global Energy Partners. All the units will be used by Royal Dutch Shell.
