Elba Island advances

The US Elba Island LNG export plant near Savannah in Georgia developed by pipeline company Kinder Morgan has had its request granted by the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to introduce feed-gas into the fifth liquefaction Train at the 10-Train facility. “This approval is based on FERC staff inspections of the applicable facilities and review of the information filed through December 23, 2019, and subsequent discussions,” said the FERC.


Turkstream for EU

The Bulgarian natural gas network firm, Bulgartransgaz, said Russian company Gazprom had started European gas deliveries via the new TurkStream pipeline to Turkey, providing more competition for LNG. The capacity flows are about 3 billion cubic metres of gas to Bulgaria via TurkStream, replacing a route that formerly passed through Ukraine and Romania. “Russian gas deliveries not only for us but also for Greece and North Macedonia are being carried through the new entry point,” said Bulgartransgaz Chief Executive Vladimir Malinov.


Shell FLNG tie-back

Royal Dutch Shell has confirmed a significant natural gas and condensate discovery within the Shell-owned title AC-P64 in the Browse Basin off the northwest coast of Western Australia with feed-gas potential for the Prelude floating LNG hull deployed in the basin. “This discovery is located 160 kilometres northeast of the Shell operated Prelude FLNG facility and presents an opportunity for a future tie-back to Prelude,” said Shell.
