World’s newest liquefaction terminal to open doors to WGC 2018 delegates

The 27th World Gas Conference (WGC 2018) takes place in Washington DC from 25 - 29 June 2018, and as part of the conference and exhibition delegates also have the unique opportunity to go on technical tours to the region’s key energy sites.

Dominion Energy Cove Point terminal, located in Lusby, Maryland, will open liquefaction service in early 2018. WGC 2018 delegates will be offered an opportunity to visit the world’s newest liquefaction terminal, which offers direct access to the Marcellus and Utica shale plays.

The facility is strategically situated on the Chesapeake Bay, where it is easily accessed by natural gas transmission lines and transport vessels. The current Cove Point liquefaction project will allow Dominion Energy to liquefy natural gas and store and load it on tanker ships for its customers to export.

This year’s conference marks the first time in 30 years that the WGC has been held in the US and it comes to Washington DC at an exciting time, with the US recently becoming a net gas exporter for the first time in 60 years. Last year’s potential gas committee assessment also reported a record future supply of natural gas in the US – the highest resource evaluation in the committee’s 52-year history.

Conference delegates will have the chance to visit two other key sites in the region - BGE’s LNG plant and gas control centre and LNG peak shaving facility in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Washington Gas pipetown and gas control operations facility in Springfield, Virginia. All technical tours will take place on 25 June prior to the conference and exhibition opening on 26 June.
