So-called commissioning cargoes during the ramp-up phase of an LNG export plant can vary in quality and teething problems can prompt delays.

Dominion said it began introducing feed gas supply into the plant on Tuesday. The gas is sourced from Shell North America, it said.

Cheniere Energy brought online its Sabine Pass project in Louisiana last year.
