Dominion Energy said work on the Cove Point LNG export facility near Lusby, Maryland is 89 percent complete.
During the month of April, work at the terminal site continued on modifications to the existing plant in the areas of the jetty platforms and tie-in scope.
At the terminal, work scope continued on foundations, grading, steel erection, equipment placement, piping, tie-in’s, and electrical installation.
Once it is completed, the liquefaction facility being built at its existing LNG terminal, will have the capacity to produce 5.25 million metric tons of liquefied natural gas per year.
The production capacity has been fully subscribed with Pacific Summit Energy, a U.S. unit of Sumitomo Corporation, as well as with GAIL Global (USA) LNG, a U.S. unit of the India’s utility GAIL, under 20-year terminal service agreements.
The project has recently been authorized to introduce fuel gas and commission the power block area at the LNG export facility.
