Dominion Energy’s Cove Point LNG export terminal in Maryland, the second US facility to produce LNG from shale gas, is expected to ship its second cargo of the fuel soon.

To remind, the commissioning cargo departed the Cove Point facility on March 2 onboard Shell’s Gemmata LNG carrier and landed at the Dragon import terminal in the UK on March 21.

According to the data by the marine data provider, VesselsValue, the 173,400-cbm newbuild LNG tanker Patris, chartered by BP, is expected to arrive at the Cove Point facility around April 9.

The tanker was located in the South Atlantic on Wednesday, the data shows.

Patris could be heading to Cove Point to pick up the facility’s second-ever cargo and first commercial shipment.

According to a report by Platts, implied feedgas volumes at Cove Point rose on Monday to 640 MMcf, the highest level in more than three weeks as it prepares for the Patris arrival.

Once commercial ops start, Dominion’s LNG export facility will produce the chilled fuel for ST Cove Point, the joint venture of Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation and Tokyo Gas, and for India’s GAIL under 20-year contracts.

The $4 billion liquefaction facility has a nameplate capacity of 5.25 mtpa of LNG.
