Cove Point LNG Facility Enters Commercial Service

Dominion Energy has announced that its Cove Point LNG terminal (DECP) in Lusby, Md., has entered commercial service for natural gas liquefaction and export. According to the press release, after completing a planned maintenance outage, the facility has been ramping up to full production of LNG from natural gas provided by its export customers since late March. DECP will produce LNG for ST Cove Point, a joint venture between Sumitomo Corporation and Tokyo Gas, and for Gail Global (USA) LNG, the U.S. affiliate of GAIL (India) LTD, under 20-year take-or-pay contracts. The United States now has two large-scale liquefaction and LNG export terminals in operation: the DECP terminal and Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Cameron Parish, La.
