Cove Point

According to Dominion Energy, Cove Point is entering commercial services for its LNG Exports.

Shell’s Gemmata arrived at Cove Point 2-Apr and was expected to load a second commissioning cargo. After 4 days at the berth, the vessel undocked 6-Apr and is currently idle near the Chesapeake Channel.  Her draft level remains unchanged at 9.3 m, indicating that the vessel may not have loaded at the liquefaction plant.  The vessel is stopped and could either be waiting for a discharge destination or to return to the berth.  Kpler Analysts will notify users of any changes on the Team Board.

GAIL’s Adam LNG is a potential vessel to load at the plant in late April-early May as well. The vessel is crossing the North Atlantic, with a direction towards Cove Point.
