PHMSA Approves Cove Point LNG Design Spill Criteria

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) sent a letter to FERC stating that it has no objection to Dominion Cove Point LNG’s (DCP) methodology for determining candidate design spills used to identify credible leakage scenarios and establish the siting for its proposed LNG export plant facilities, as required by PHMSA regulations.  PHMSA’s letter can be found here, and the complete docket for DCP’s proposed LNG export terminal can be found on eLibrary under Docket No. CP13-113.
