U.S. LNG exports slip on week
- Ports & Logistics
Liquefied natural gas exports from the U.S. decreased over the last week, according to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
EIA stated in its weekly report that eight LNG vessels, five from Sabine Pass, one each from Corpus Christi, Cove Point, and one from Cameron departed from the United States between August 22 and August 28.
The eight vessels held a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 30 bcf.
It is worth noting that one vessel was loading on Wednesday, July 28, at the Corpus Christi terminal.
EIA added that Cheniere Energy, the developer of the Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi LNG export terminals, received a letter order from the FERC allowing them to place Corpus Christi Train 2 into commercial operation. The first cargo from Train 2 was shipped in July 2019.
