Dominion Energy exports first cargo from Cove Point
March 2, 2018
A transport ship carrying the first cargo of LNG for export departed on March, 1, 2018 from the Dominion Energy Cove Point LNG terminal, where the newly constructed liquefaction facility is undergoing final commissioning. Shell NA LNG is providing the natural gas needed for liquefaction during the commissioning process and is off-taking the LNG that is produced.
When commissioning is complete, DECP will produce LNG for ST Cove Point, which is the joint venture of Sumitomo Co. and Tokyo Gas, and for Gail Global LNG, the U.S. affiliate of GAIL under 20-year contracts. DECP’s liquefaction facility has a nameplate capacity of 5.25 mtpa of LNG.
