In its latest Short-Term Energy Outlook for the period between 20 January and 26 January, EIA reports that 25 LNG vessels departed the United States. Specifically, this is five more vessels than the previous report week.

The vessels held a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 91 billion cubic feet. Eight departed from Sabine Pass, five from Corpus Christi, four each from Cameron and Freeport, and two each from Cove Point and Elba Island.

The Henry Hub spot price, however, fell from $4.74 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) last Wednesday to $4.37/MMBtu this week.
