Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the United States increased week on week, Energy Information Administration said in its report.

EIA stated in its weekly report that eight LNG vessels, five from Sabine Pass, one from Cove Point, and two from Corpus Christi departed from the United States between April 11 to April 17.

The eight vessels held a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 28.4 bcf.

Also, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a notice on April 12 to Golden Pass Products and Golden Pass Pipeline to proceed with initial site preparation for a proposed Golden Pass LNG project.

Golden Pass LNG will consist of three trains with a combined liquefaction capacity of 2.1 billion cubic feet per day.

ExxonMobil and Qatar Petroleum are developing the project at the site of an existing Golden Pass regasification terminal. The project is expected to come online by 2023.
