The nearly US$2 billion export project is located in Georgia, and is 51% owned by units of Kinder Morgan and 49% owned by EIG Global Energy Partners. It is designed to liquefy approximately 2.5 million tpy of LNG. Royal Dutch Shell Plc has a 20-year contract to utilise the facility.
According to Reuters, Kinder Morgan expects one 0.3 million tpy LNG train to enter service approximately once a month through the summer of 2020. At this point, all 10 trains should be operating.
The company reportedly added that Train 2 would be ready for service on 16 January, according to a filing with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). This will be the fourth train to enter service at the plant. Trains 1, 3 and 4 are already operating, with Train 1 having entered service in early October.
The first LNG cargo was exported from the facility in December.
