U.S. weekly LNG exports dip
Liquefied natural gas exports from the United States slipped over the previous week.
The United States Energy Information Administration (EIA) noted that a total of five LNG cargoes have been shipped during the week ending August 5.
The five tankers had a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 18 Billion cubic feet (Bcf) of the chilled fuel. This compares to seven cargoes with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 25 Bcf.
Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG facility shipped three cargoes with one cargo each added by its Corpus Christi plant and Sempra’s Cameron LNG facility.
EIA further noted that natural gas deliveries to liquefied natural gas export terminals picked up for the week. Pipeline deliveries reached 3.8 Bcf/d, up from 3.2 Bcf in the previous week.
