Dominion Cove Point has been authorized to introduce fuel gas and commission the power block area at the LNG export facility near Lusby, Maryland.

However, this approval does not grant Dominion the authority to introduce hazardous fluids into other project facilities, according to a notice by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The LNG export project being built within the existing regasification facility has already passed the 80 percent completion mark Dominion vice president of construction Bob McKinley, told the local media.

Earlier in January, Mike Frederick, vice president LNG operations at Dominion said the project is on budget and schedule to enter service in late 2017.

Once it is completed, the liquefaction facility 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.
