Dominion’s Cove Point LNG Terminal Begins Commercial Service
The Dominion Energy Cove Point (DECP) liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Maryland has begun commercial service for natural gas liquefaction and export, Dominion Energy announced Tuesday.
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, which is the joint venture of 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.
