HDR Selected as Owner’s Engineer for Kinder Morgan Elba Liquefaction Project
June 8, 2016—HDR has been selected as the owner’s engineer for Kinder Morgan’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project at Elba Island near Savannah, Georgia. The project is currently in the engineering, procurement and construction phase.
The Elba liquefaction project will include installation of 10 liquefaction units for an output capacity of approximately 2.5 million tons per year of LNG, and modifications to the existing Elba Terminal to allow for export. The project will use Shell’s innovative small-scale liquefaction units, which will be integrated into the existing Elba Terminal and enable rapid construction compared to traditional large-scale plants.
