Request to stop Cove Point LNG construction denied

Dominion informed that the request filed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia by environmental groups asking for a halt of the construction of the Cove Point LNG export facility has been denied.

Judges David S. Tatel, Janice Rogers Brown and Patricia A. Millett issued an order saying the groups have not satisfied the stringent requirements for a stay pending court review. Dominion revealed in a statement that the two judges wrote that there were no strongly compelling reasons justifying the expedition.

Environmental and citizen groups sought the stop of construction at the facility as they move forward with the lawsuit over the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s approval of Dominion’s construction plans.

Following the court decision issued late Friday, Dominion said that the construction at Cove Point continues on schedule.
