Dominion commissioning activities approved by FERC

The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued a letter granting Dominion Energy Cove Point LNG LP authorisation to introduce hazardous fluids and carry out related commissioning activities for the following: feed gas to the pretreatment and liquefaction areas and equipment related to ship loading, including the LNG loading pumps and the return gas blowers.

In the letter, FERC claims that the company’s request complies with Environmental Condition 11 of the commission’s 29 September 2014 Order Granting Section 3 and Section 7 Authorisations. The commission goes on to say that the request is also consistent with Conditions 67 – 74, which are required before commissioning and before the introduction of hazardous fluids. This approval is based on FERC staff inspections, as well as review of the information that was filed on 21 and 31 August 2017.

FERC writes: “I remind you that Dominion must comply with all applicable remaining terms and conditions of the above referenced Order, as well as procedures stipulated in your previous filings. We also note that Dominion must also comply with any applicable Department of Transportation requirements under 49 CFR 193 and U.S. Coast Guard requirements under 33 CFR 127 and 33 CFR 105.”

The commission goes on to say that this approval does not grant the company the authority to introduce hazardous fluids into other project facilities, noting that further authorisations will be released once Dominion has demonstrated full compliance with the Order’s conditions.
