Dominion Energy on Monday filed a request to introduce feed gas to parts of its Cove Point LNG export facility in order to commission the liquefied natural gas loading equipment. 

According to the company’s filing, it plans to introduce feed gas and perform related commissioning activities for the pre-treatment and liquefaction areas and for equipment related to ship loading, including the liquefied natural gas loading pumps and the return-gas blowers.

These activities will support production of LNG in the fourth quarter of 2017, Dominion Energy said.

Earlier this month, Dominion noted its Cove Point LNG export facility near Lusby, Maryland is 95 percent complete.

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 India’s utility GAIL, under 20-year terminal service agreements.
