USA: Dominion’s Cove Point ships first LNG export cargo

Dominion Energy’s Cove Point terminal in Maryland, the second US facility to produce LNG from shale gas, shipped its first cargo of the fuel on Friday.

As previously reported by LNG World News, Shell’s 136,985-cbm LNG carrier Gemmata docked at the Cove Point facility on Wednesday to load the first LNG export cargo.

The LNG tanker left the facility early on Friday, according to the marine data provider, VesselsValue. The vessel’s final destination was not disclosed by the time this article was published.

Dominion Energy has previously said that Shell was providing the natural gas needed for liquefaction during the commissioning process of the facility and will off-take by ship the LNG that is produced.

When commissioning is complete, 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 Cove Point facility has a nameplate capacity of 5.25 mtpa of LNG.
