Dominion Pipes Gas Out from Cove Point, Continues Construction of Liquefaction Facility

Water vapor rises in the background as site preparation work continues at Cove Point LNG despite the cold weather on Friday. The water vapor was from the equipment turning LNG into its gas state to be put in the pipeline to meet increased demand this winter. The current number of construction workers and support staff is at 480 but is expected to climb to 1,500 later this year as the pace of the project picks up and gets beyond site preparation./Photo by Darwin Weigel

Note: Cove Point LNG has been dormant as an import facility since 2011. Its function then was to offload liquefied natural gas (LNG) from tankers which originated in Algeria, and pipe it into the seven massive storage tanks. The supercooled and pressurized LNG would then be re-gasified in order to travel through pipelines.

Prince Frederick, MD – For Lambertine Jones Jr. the whole situation is an example of a promise that was broken. The Chesapeake Beach resident who owns LJ Enterprises, a hauling contractor, said talk that the lucrative Dominion Cove Point Export project would give various sub-contracts to Calvert County businesses was apparently just that—talk.

“When this project was promoted I walked away with the understanding that Calvert businesses would have first priority,” Jones told the Calvert County Commissioners during their Tuesday, Jan. 27 meeting. “This is not happening.”

Jones told the board that he has spoken with other Calvert County contractors, all of whom claim their trucks are parked and not involved in the $3.8 billion project to construct a liquefaction facility at the Cove Point Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Plant.

“No Calvert trucks are involved in this project,” Jones declared. Continue reading Local Jobs Promised by Dominion Go to Outside Bidders
