U.S. 2014 LNG imports nosedive

LNG imports into the U.S. dropped 39,2 percent in 2014 to 50.1 Bcf, as compared to the year before, according to the U.S. Department of Energy data.

The U.S. imported 26 liquefied natural gas cargoes in 2014, with no imports recorded in November, according to the data.

Most of the cargoes were shipped from Trinidad and Tobago, and Yemen. The Everett LNG terminal received the majority of the LNG, followed by the Cove point import terminal.

The country exported five cargoes of the chilled gas from Conoco’s Kenai facility in Alaska. All of them were delivered onboard the Excel LNG tanker to Japan’s Kansai Electric.

One cargo was also re-exported in February last year from the Freeport LNG terminal to Brazil.
