Dominion Celebrates Construction of Cove Point Liquefaction Project

 

LNG Wold News Blog: Dominion said it has celebrated with its international business partners and Maryland community leaders the construction of the Dominion Cove Point LNG liquefaction project. 

Kenichiro Sasae, the Japanese ambassador to the United States, and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan joined Dominion Chairman Thomas F. Farrell II at the ceremony, along with Diane Leopold, president, Dominion Energy; Kazuhiro Takeuchi, president, CEO, and general manager for the Americas, Sumitomo Corp of Americas; Jayanta Sinha, president, GAIL Global U.S.A., and Steven R. Weems, president, Calvert County Board of County Commissioners.

 

Cove Point will supply critical American allies in India and Japan with much-needed natural gas that will help reduce global greenhouse gas emissions,” said Farrell. “Although the doubters said it could not be done, in late 2017 our liquefier will be online, and ships will begin receiving LNG for export.”
