Dominion Cove Point is located on the Chesapeake Bay in Lusby. It is one of the nation's largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) import facilities.
Cove Point LNG Terminal has a storage capacity of 14.6 billion cubic feet (BCF) and a daily send-out capacity of 1.8 BCF. The terminal connects, via its own pipeline, to the major mid-Atlantic gas transmission systems of Transcontinental Gas Pipeline, Columbia Gas Transmission and Dominion Energy Transmission. Specially designed LNG transport ships carry LNG from various locations in the world and is off-loaded at an offshore dock, transported through a series of pipes, stored in insulated tanks for subsequent gasification and then delivered into the pipeline.
