Tour of Elba Island LNG Export Terminal and Elba Island Salt Marsh Restoration Project

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

8:00 am to 11:00 am

Join us for a tour of the Elba Island LNG terminal located approximately 10 minute drive from the conference facility. Southern LNG (SLNG), a business unit of Kinder Morgan, Inc., owns the Elba Island LNG terminal. The terminal has 11.5 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of LNG storage capacity and 1,755 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of peak vaporization send-out capacity. The Elba Island LNG terminal is directly connected to four major pipelines and indirectly to two others.  Transportation to the facility and for use during the driving portion of site tour will be provided.  We will tour the LNG Terminal Facility and hear a presentation about its operation. 

Weather permitting, we will also visit Kinder Morgan’s nearby successful salt marsh mitigation site.  The Elba Island Salt Marsh Restoration Project was selected as one of Georgia’s five State Award Winners for the 2016 Engineering Excellence Awards and is being entered in the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) National Engineering Excellence Awards competition.

Thank you to Kinder Morgan/SLNG for providing this opportunity and to HDR, Inc. for the support in coordinating and sponsoring the bus service for the event.
