The first cargo of liquefied natural gas shipped from the Dominion’s Cove Point LNG export facility in Maryland is heading for the shores of the United Kingdom. 

The $4 billion Cove Point facility is currently undergoing final commissioning and has become the second US facility to produce LNG from shale gas when it dispatched its first cargo on March 1 onboard the Gemmata LNG carrier.

Shipping data from the Milford Haven Port Authority shows Shell’s 136,985-cbm LNG carrier as arriving at the Dragon LNG terminal on March 21.

Shell’s North American unit is providing the natural gas needed for liquefaction during the commissioning process and is off-taking by ship the LNG that is produced.

The Dragon LNG terminal at Waterston, Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire, is owned by Shell (50 percent) and Petronas (50 percent).
