Sen. Murkowski welcomes Cove Point LNG approval

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski, applauded the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for approving Dominion’s liquefied natural gas export project at Cove Point, Maryland. 


“The economic and energy security benefits of exporting LNG to our friends and allies are irrefutable,” Murkowski said. “Decision by FERC is another step in the right direction and I hope the Department of Energy will quickly follow suit and issue a final license for Cove Point to begin exporting LNG.”

Murkowski urged Department of Energy (DOE) officials in June to continue issuing conditional licenses until proposed changes to its application process were finalized, and then to quickly issue final licenses to projects that had already been through environmental review by FERC.
