Dominion Energy plans to construct a compressor station directly across the river from Mount Vernon in Charles County, Maryland.
The compressor station is part of a Dominion Energy project titled “Eastern Market Access” that deals with natural gas delivery via a pipeline network to points in northern Virginia and southern Maryland.
According to Dominion Energy the project will “help meet increasing demand for natural gas for two local customers: Washington Gas Light Company (WGL), a local gas utility serving metro D.C., Virginia and Maryland; and Mattawoman Energy, LLC (Mattawoman), for its new Mattawoman Energy Center, an electric power-generation facility being built in Maryland.”1
