Dominion Cove Point Moves Closer To Liquefaction Project After Court Decision On Sierra Club Claims

RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion (NYSE: D) will move forward with engineering, marketing and regulatory review processes after a declaratory judgment confirmed its right to build liquefaction facilities at its Dominion Cove Point facility on the Chesapeake Bay in Lusby, Md.

Circuit Court Judge James P. Salmon of Maryland ruled today that Dominion Cove Point's agreement with environmental agencies allows it to build liquefaction facilities inside the plant's fenced area and export liquefied natural gas. The Sierra Club had maintained Dominion needed its permission to build the facilities.

"Dominion has made considerable progress towards a project that will bring jobs and revenues to the national and local economies," said Thomas F. Farrell II, president, chief executive officer and chairman of Dominion.  "We have received support from business, labor, government, community and environmental groups for a major construction project that would bring great benefits to many people.  We look forward to working with the Sierra Club and other involved environmental groups to continue the outstanding record of environmental cooperation at Dominion Cove Point."

The liquefaction project is expected to cost between $2.5 billion and $3.5 billion.

Dominion has received permission from the Department of Energy (DOE) to act as an agent for liquefied natural gas exports to countries with free trade agreements and is waiting for DOE action on its application for countries without a free trade agreement.  Dominion has entered the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's pre-filing process in anticipation of filing an application in 2013. Engineering studies are continuing and are expected to be completed soon.  Terminal services agreements are under negotiation with potential customers, including Sumitomo Corporation, a major Japanese trading company.

Dominion is one of the nation's largest producers and transporters of energy, with a portfolio of approximately 27,400 megawatts of generation, 11,000 miles of natural gas transmission, gathering and storage pipeline and 6,300 miles of electric transmission lines.  Dominion operates one of the nation's largest natural gas storage systems with 947 billion cubic feet of capacity and serves retail energy customers in 15 states.
