The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has given the green light to Kinder Morgan's Gulf LNG export project in Jackson County, Mississippi.
The approval is for the construction and operation of facilities for the export of LNG at the existing import terminal operated by Kinder Morgan.
The Gulf LNG site was originally developed as an LNG import terminal in 2009 but following record sale gas production, the company sought permission to redevelop part of the site as an export terminal.
The project will add 11.5 million metric tonnes of new capacity to the facility and includes two liquefaction plants. Additionally, the existing Gulf LNG Pipeline will be modified to allow for bidirectional flow.
