Dominion Energy's 5.25 Mt/year Cove Point LNG export project in Maryland (United States) has entered commercial service. The US$4bn liquefaction plant started to produce LNG in February 2018 and has been ramping up to full production since late March 2018, becoming the first gas liquefaction project and export facility on the US East Coast. As of today, the liquefaction project's marketed capacity is completely subscribed under a 20-year service agreement. Pacific Summit Energy, a US subsidiary of the Japanese trading company Sumitomo, and GAIL (India), have each contracted 50% of the marketed capacity.
