The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved a request by Dominion Energy to perform certain commissioning activities at its Cove Point LNG export facility near Lusby, Maryland.

Dominion Energy has been granted by FERC to introduce feed gas and perform related commissioning activities for the pre-treatment and liquefaction areas and for equipment related to ship loading, including the LNG loading pumps and the return-gas blowers.

These activities will support production of LNG in the fourth quarter of 2017, Dominion Energy said last month.

Once it is completed, the Cove Point liquefaction facility being built at its existing LNG import terminal will have the capacity to produce 5.25 million metric tons of LNG per year.

The production capacity has been fully subscribed with Pacific Summit Energy, a U.S. unit of Sumitomo Corporation, as well as with GAIL Global (USA) LNG, a U.S. unit of India’s utility GAIL, under 20-year terminal service agreements.
