WASHINGTON — The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has authorized Dominion Resources to build a liquefied natural gas facility in southern Maryland.

The agency said in a news release posted Monday on its website that Dominion can build the facility in Calvert County. The $3.8 billion project will be constructed at its existing Cove Point terminal on the Chesapeake Bay.

Numerous environmental groups had objected to Dominion’s proposal, claiming the project would hurt the bay and increase air pollution.
