Energy company Dominion said Monday that it formally accepted Maryland regulators' conditions for their approval of a power plant the company needs to export liquefied natural gas from its Southern Maryland complex. Maryland's Public Service Commission said Dominion could build the 130-megawatt generating facility only if the company contributed $48 million toward funds set up for clean energy efforts, energy efficiency and low-income utility bill assistance. Regulators said the project otherwise would provide no net economic benefit to Marylanders.

The energy company Dominion said Tuesday that it is exploring developing an alternate evacuation route for some residential neighbors of its proposed Cove Point liquefied natural gas plant, prompting opponents to question anew assertions by the company and federal regulators that the facility poses no significant safety or environmental risks. Karl R. Neddenien, spokesman for the Richmond, Va.-based company, declined to offer details but said Dominion is "looking into" establishing an alternate route for residents living on Cove Point to get away should there be an emergency at the facility.

Every game, it seems, brings a new lesson for the young Maryland women's basketball team. Earlier this week, the Terrapins had to learn how to survive when their shots weren't falling. On Thursday night, they had to figure out how to persevere after wasting a 26-point lead and repeatedly throwing the ball away. Maryland (3-0) leaned on Lynetta Kizer and Diandra Tchatchouang and pulled away for an 84-67 victory over Old Dominion in front of an announced 4,681 at Comcast Center. The two forwards combined for 41 points on 17-for-23 shooting.

Last week there was a gas leak on Solomon's Island. The authorities didn't shut down the island and evacuate residents because it was believed driving by the leak could be more harmful that staying put. In nearby Lusby, Dominion has plans to expand its present facility to export huge amounts of highly flammable liquefied natural gas ( "Cove Point zoning exemption overturned," Aug. 12). As we look at this latest gas leak and the possibility that there could have been a gas fire there, we need to ask ourselves why this LNG plant is being built near a populated area.

A Calvert County judge brushed aside Friday a potential legal hurdle to exporting liquefied natural gas via the Chesapeake Bay, ruling that Dominion, the Richmond, Va.-based energy company, does not need the Sierra Club's permission to convert its LNG import terminal at Cove Point. Circuit Judge James P. Salmon said Dominion has the right to export LNG from Cove Point, despite an agreement the company has had for decades giving the Sierra Club and another environmental group a say over the company's expansion of the little-used shipping facility near the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant in Southern Maryland.

Virginia-based Dominion said Tuesday that it has applied to bid in the auction that will determine who will build Maryland's first offshore wind turbines, part of the state's push to increase local sources of renewable energy. Tuesday was the deadline for filing qualification packages for the auction, planned to be held late this year. The U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, which is overseeing the auction, said the number and names of qualified bidders would be released later, likely in late spring.

A proposed natural gas export facility in Southern Maryland moved closer to reality Friday, but state regulators ordered the terminal's owner to include more safety and environmental protections for the controversial project, and to donate $48 million to promote clean energy in the state and to help low-income Marylanders pay their power bills. The Maryland Public Service Commission authorized Dominion, an energy company based in Richmond, Va., to build a 130-megawatt generating station at its existing Lusby import terminal.

A Calvert County circuit judge has overturned the Southern Maryland county's decision to exempt the proposed Cove Point liquefied natural gas export facility from local zoning regulations. It's not clear, however, whether the decision affects plans for the $3.4 billion project. Judge James P. Salmon declared that Calvert County acted illegally in freeing Cove Point, now the site of a liquefied natural gas import terminal, from having to comply with the county's zoning ordinance. In doing so, the judge said, county officials violated Maryland's constitution by treating Dominion, the Virginia-based energy company that owns the site, differently from other property owners.

I'm confused about your report that Virginia-based energy company Dominion wants to convert it's little-used natural gas import terminal at Cove Point into an export facility ("A key win for LNG facility," July 24). According to your story, shale gas extracted "from Pennsylvania, West Virginia and elsewhere would be piped there, liquefied and shipped via tankers to lucrative foreign markets. Business, labor and many local elected officials back the project, arguing it will generate jobs and help the nation achieve energy independence.

A proposed liquefied natural gas facility in Calvert County could put nearby residents at "significant risk" if a fire or explosion occurs, according to a British consulting firm hired by opponents of the project to review its hazards. Ricardo-AEA, commissioned by some nearby residents and the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, concluded that plans to convert the Cove Point import terminal for liquefied natural gas into one processing and exporting large quantities of the volatile fuel pose additional, possibly "intolerable" risks for workers at the site and people living within eight-tenths of a mile of it. "My view is that the project shouldn't be allowed to go forward, unless the applicant can demonstrate that the risks are not 'intolerable,' and that the risks have been reduced to a level which is as low as reasonably practicable," said Mark Broomfield, author of the report.

Towson coach Pat Kennedy arrived at the Towson Center early last night, thinking the game started a half hour before it actually did. His team, however, appeared not to have shown up until it was too late. The Tigers found themselves down by double digits just six minutes in, and before the midway point of the first half, they were already trailing by 20. And despite making one run deep into the opening half, Towson never really threatened and Old Dominion continued its dominance over the Tigers with an 85-71 win before 1,108.

I disagree with Rep. John Delaney that Cove Point should be approved as a liquid natural gas export facility ( "Natural gas is the right choice for the U.S.," April 2). The harm that will come from such approval is immeasurable and the brunt will be borne by the people of Maryland, not to mention those to the north and west who are currently being "fracked. " I live in Myersville, a small community in Frederick County. Dominion Resources came to Myersville with a plan to build an oversized natural gas compressor station at the gateway to our town.
