Dominion Energy is looking to divest its stake in the Cove Point liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland, US, reported Reuters, citing a report published by Bloomberg News.

As a part of the plan, Dominion is working with undisclosed advisers to seek potential bids from suitors including infrastructure funds.

Deliberations over the current sale of Dominion Energy’s multibillion-dollar worth stake are at an initial stage.

Dominion may also decide to retain its 50% stake in the project, the sources told the publication.

Berkshire Hathaway’s BHE GT&S operates the Cove Point LNG project with a 25% stake while the remaining 25% stake is held by Brookfield Asset Management.

The LNG export facility has a storage capacity of 14.6 billion cubic feet (Bcf). It has a send-out capacity of 1.8Bcf per day.
