FERC has issued an order authorising Dominion Energy Cove Point LNG, LP to introduce hazardous fluids and perform related commissioning activities at its liquefaction and LNG import/export terminal at Lusby, Md. 

The order does not grant approval for commencement of service from the facility, which will be authorised separately “following a determination that the facilities have been constructed in accordance with the Commission Order and applicable standards, can be expected to operate safely as designed, and that the rehabilitation and restoration of the areas affected by the project are proceeding satisfactorily.”

Separately, a Dominion Energy Inc. spokesman told reporters that the facility is expected to enter service by the end of 2017.
