Dominion Plans to Expand MD Gas Liquefaction Plant

On April 1, 2013, Dominion announced that it was submitting an application to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a $3.4 billion to $3.8 billion natural gas liquefaction project at its existing Dominion Cove Point LNG Terminal located on the Chesapeake Bay in Lusby, Maryland, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Cove Point will serve both the Marcellus and Utica shale plays. Subject to receipt of regulatory approvals, Dominion plans to start construction on the 5.25-MTPA (million tons per annum) facility in 2014 and put the liquefaction facilities in service in 2017.
