FERC to Issue Environmental Assessment for Dominion Cove Point LNG Export Project

Dominion said that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will issue its Environmental Assessment for the Dominion Cove Point LNG liquefaction and export project on May 15.

The proposed export facility will be within the 131-acre footprint of the LNG import facility, which has been in Calvert County for 40 years. No new pipelines, storage tanks or piers are needed at the facility. The company needs about 50 permits and approvals before construction can begin.

Dominion filed notice for the pre-filing process with the FERC in June 2012 that it was planning to add export capability at its Cove Point terminal in Lusby, Md., in Calvert County on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The FERC has been researching and analyzing the application since then. Dominion filed the application in April 2013 and it now totals more than 21,000 pages.

Since then the company has participated in about 10 public information sessions and federal and state  regulatory proceedings, has given more than 50 presentations to neighborhood groups in Southern Maryland, distributed more than 26,000 fact books about the project in the community and engaged the community through social media channels.
