On December 5th, 2017 Dominion Energy Cove Point introduced feed gas into its newly constructed natural gas liquefaction facility currently undergoing commissioning. The Dominion Energy Cove Point Terminal is located on the Chesapeake Bay in Lusby, Maryland, south of Baltimore.
All major equipment at the terminal is in operation and is being commissioned as expected following a comprehensive round of testing and quality assurance activities.
Shell NA LNG is providing the natural gas needed for liquefaction during the commissioning process and will off-take the LNG that is produced.
Dominion Energy Cove Point liquefaction facility has a nameplate capacity of 5.25 mtpa of LNG. Construction of the liquefaction facility began in October 2014. With a cost of $4 billion, it is the largest construction project ever for the state of Maryland and for Dominion Energy.
